Canada Quilt

What is it with cats?

They're so damn inquisitive that they won't leave you in peace to take a photo!

This work is NOT mine... but By Golly it's wonderful!

Don't you think?

I came across this magnificent Work In Progress over on Ravelry. 

Canada Quilt

It belongs to a Brilliantly Creative woman by the name of Colleen, who is designing a quilt to represent her native Canada... not by representing traditional icons, but using images which are personal to her.

 Canada Quilt

I love the idea - and I'm inspired to create my own quilt, representing Australia!

If you're a member at Ravelry, you can check out Colleen's project page here. She talks in great detail about each square, and why it is significant to her. Well worth reading...

And maybe you will be inspired too!

I love this! I've been designing and crocheting intarsia for a few years now, but not small pieces like this, usually huge afghans. (I even traded a Darth Vader afghan for a tattoo!) Now I might have to start making smaller pieces and using my traditional SC as well as some Tunisian stitches for added texture.

I would LOVE to see what you would do with an Australian quilt. It could be magnificent!
