These panel prints are fun to make into a Canadian themed quilt in just the right size to cozy up at the cabin or use as an afternoon picnic blanket.

What you need:

1x each Canada Postcard panel
.8m of 112cm solid cotton for sashing
2.5m of 112cm cotton blender for border
2.5m of 112cm cotton blender for backing
Quilt batting of your choice

Panels, cotton quilting fabrics and materials needed to make the Canada Postcard quilt.

What you do:

1. Cut the squares apart leaving the 1/2” border around each. (total 15 squares needed)
TIP: use the border of each square as the guide for cutting.

2. Cut 20 sashing strips 2.5 x 11.5” and 6 strips 2.5 x 46.25”.

3. Arrange the blocks in the order that you’d like.
Then, working left to right, sew on the vertical 11.5” sashing strips = sashing + square1 + sashing + square2 + sashing + square 3 + sashing.
Continue with other 4 rows.
TIP: If you turn the square to the wrong side you can use the border as your seam allowance.
