Happy Canada Day! (and more of the vortex!)

One of the fabrics I used in my quilt vortex project is very appropriate for today...Canada Day!  We are finally having some sunny weather after several gray and rainy days. There are plans for a  family bbq and fireworks later on today to celebrate this wonderful country that we call home.

I spent some time last night sewing and pressing and trimming on my vortex quilt.  I now have several large blocks made from my scraps, which, with borders, should make a nice sized lap quilt. I am quite sure that I have something in my stash for the borders and backing for this quilt... I have used up lots of scraps for this quilt but still have lots more.  I may need to make another one of these quilts sometime to use up some more scraps!

Here are my blocks on the design floor:

I will have to check in at Crazy Mom's blog today to see what she suggests I do next.  None of the blocks are the same size. I suspect I will be cobbling them together somehow into a quilt top!
I took this picture last night in my backyard...  Any guesses as to what it is????

Happy Canada Day to all of my Canadian readers!


  1. Amazing plant ... no idea what it is though ☺happy Canada Day Gail!

  2. Happy Canada Day!! Whoop Whoop!

    Love your scrap vortex...looks great! and as for the plant...I'm guessing cauliflower? (I think I'm wrong, but it kinda looks like it.)
