Its a beautiful, sunny and warm Canada Day. Today is also my 34th Wedding Anniversary so the Hub and I are enjoying a lovely day together. We had a wonderful, romantic dinner last night at Cafe Chianti. A few years ago their original location was destroyed by fire so they moved around the corner to a new location on Barrington Street. The food is amazing and the service is awesome.
"Nova Scotia Patchwork Patterns" by Carter Houck. I used templates and I hand quilted it. The binding is New Brunswick tartan. My nephew's paternal ancestors came from the Rothesay area. I made this quilt for him five years ago when he was living in Holland. He is 21 now and living in Kingston, Ont. attending Queen's University, studying to become a Chemical Engineer. He was born in Calgary, Alberta and has been living overseas for several years but is still a proud Canadian kid! So this quilt commemorates Canada, from me to him.
