Canadian Sesquicentennial Quilt  

In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Canada, and as part of the Inaugural Canadian Craft Biennial, individuals from across Canada submitted quilted squares to be included in the Canadian Sesquicentennial Quilt. Participants were encouraged to share their thoughts and memories about their region and ideas on what it means to be Canadian. Many of those who submitted quilt squares had immigrated to Canada or came from families who immigrated, and their work centred abound themes of welcoming, hope, opportunity, and freedom. Many others chose to highlight Canada’s natural resources and beauty, from the grand mountain ranges and breathtaking northern lights, to the fruit orchards and wheat fields, right down to the smallest wild blueberry. Others still focused on particular symbols of Canadian national or regional identity, like the maple leaf, of course, and the ubiquitous Timbit. All of these unique quilt squares together emanate a sense of pride for Canada’s land and people, and a sense of optimism for continuing innovation, sustainability and diversity in Canada’s future.   150th quilt project  

My section is in the second row third from the right. I imagine Canada as a group of people in a choir, many voices from many places and  ethnicities. Each Province and Territory is represented by one person of that choir and size and placement  is only with regards to number of people and hectares of land for each place.
