Patchwork in Canada

During my travels in Canada I spotted various items of patchwork in heritage centres and museums that I couldn’t resist taking photos of.

This wonderful wall hanging was on display in the Whistler Public Library. My favourite combination – libraries and quilts!

Also in Whistler were these lovely canvas and patchwork storage baskets/ bags. Spotted at the Farmers’ market near our hotel on an extremely hot day.

The following items were in the Railway Heritage museum in Valemount. Not only quilts but a wonderful rug in the same style as Geordie clippy mats but with a lot of extra flair.
