Time has been on my side these last couple weeks – I’ve managed three (count ’em, three!) instalments in the cross-Canada quilt adventure. Yukon (which isn’t quite done, it needs more snow), Nunavut (which is all white, of course), and this, the Northwest Territories: Aurora Borealis.

I think this is my favourite so far. It’s not the most pictorial and there isn’t a lot of detail, but I LOVE the tones of the colours, and the metallic thread that shimmers through. I’d like to do this on a large scale (this is 24” x 16”), or at least use these vibrant shades in a large quilt. So many ideas, so little time… 6 provinces left!
