I have lots of posts on embroidery, needlework and crazy quilting. Right now, in the time of Covid pandemic, my interests have turned to living frugally, gardening, cooking, etc. A regular Suzie Homemaker!

Canada Block Pieced
This is my block for the ICQA (International Crazy Quilt Association) Flag Project. We are making a quilt with blocks from each of the countries that our members come from, and I was lucky enough to score the chance to do the Canadian block. Ignore the basting stitches still in play there and you can see I decided to make a huge maple leaf. It is a twelve inch block so I started by piecing four inch crazy quilted blocks in white and red and then using them to piece a traditional maple leaf quilt block. Now the fun of the embellishing can begin!
