This block from Quiltmaker Magazine was the block I chose. British Columbia's provincial flower is the Dogwood so this was perfect. Besides, my father had once sent me a postcard from Great Falls Montana that contained a story about the legend of the dogwood. That postcard also inspired me to use the Dogwood block. Here are some of the other blocks that were exchanged and where they came from.
and this is how I pieced together the blocks that I had kept for myself.
I used an Attic Windows setting and was able to placed the odd sized ones in the centre. I've called it My Windows on the World. It still has to be sandwiched and quilted, but that will have to wait. I've got some FMQ to practice first.
