Project Quilting - Hometown Proud

Project Quilting is a weekly challenge hosted by Kim @ Persimon Dreams.  This is Season 9, and there are six weekly challenges.  The theme of the first challenge was Hometown Proud.



I'm happy to say that I accepted the challenge and was able to complete it around midnight last night, in advance of today's noon deadline.

This wall hanging is 11 x 30 inches and represents my hometown of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.  I've included a lighthouse, a sailboat, and a fishing shed.


Nova Scotia is on the east coast of Canada.  We have a lot of lighthouses.


Dartmouth is called the City of Lakes -- we have a large amount of  lakes.  There is lot of sailing in our lakes and in the harbour (that we share with Halifax).  I used Kona Malibu for the water, and Nova Scotia tartan for the sails.


We have numerous fishing communities in my area and in Nova Scotia.


This is a 2016 Row by Row pattern by Lynn's Quilting Studio.

  11. I too love the tartan sails and the fabric choice for the rocks.
    It makes me wonder I would include in a mini to represent where I live.
