1st Slab Top Done

I got one of the slab quilt tops done. I am making slab quilts to donate to Canada's Big Quilt Bee. You can find the slab block pattern Here by Cherly Arkison. 

I had a helper today to take photos. I thought a quilt hug was a good photo. It was kind of cold out today with a bite of wind. 

Over the deck rail

My model is hiding. This quit has 24 12" blocks. So the quilt measures 48" by 72", I think it is the larger size they were looking for. 

This is a cute bush to drape the quilt on. 

Each block is to have at least on fabric that is Canadian. I used the nice white with red maple leaves. 

So happy to have a top done. 

I have added this post to Crazy Mom Quilts


  1. Ein sehr schöner Quilt, ich liebe die Farben!

  2. This is beautiful, Cathy! I love how you used your Canada maple leaf fabric in the center of each slab. And of course, who can resist a rainbow? :) Great job for a worthy project.

  3. Did you know that Kat has a linkup for charity quilts? You should add this lovely finish to her list!

  4. Love your rainbow quilt! If it needs to be any wider a simpler border would do the trick. :-)

  5. Such bright happy colors! Perfect for a charity quilt!

  6. You always have gorgeous fabrics so this is another gorgeous quilt.. Some day I am going to make one of these quilts - thanks for sharing the tutorial for it..
    Regards, Anna

  7. LOVE this bright, beautiful Slab Quilt!!

  8. It looks amazing and I love the maple leaf fabric in each, what a gorgeous way to incorporate it

  9. One who sleeps under this amazing rainbow quilt is comforted by warm love. Truly, madly love it, Cathy!
