150 Canadian Women

Scroll down for blocks

Blocks and articles about 150 Canadian born women.
July 1, 2017 marks Canada's 150th birthday. What better way to commemorate this than by creating a 150 block red and white quilt. And what better way than to learn about 150 inspiring Canadian pioneering women from yesteryear to today.

This pattern series is being offered FREE for a limited time to download to our followers who follow Next Step Quilt Design's blog. Be sure to sign up in the box Follow by Email to receive notice of when the new blocks are available. A set of 3 blocks will be available every week for two weeks only. If you miss a set of blocks, do not panic, a CD will be available at the end of the program for $30 + free shipping.
