Northcott's Trans-Canada Block Party
Canadian Sesquicentennial Celebration by Northcott
This program has three components all of which are based on their new fabric line of the same name for the 150th year.
Transcanada Block Party: From January to September 2017, participating shops will provide a free pattern (or have kits for sale) for a block to customers who visit their store. Much like the Row by Row Experience program many of you are familiar with, this is not available on-line or by mail. Kits from participating stores must consist of only the Canadian Sesquicentennial Celebration fabrics and the blocks can range from 6" x 6" to 18" x 18", in 6" increments. We are thrilled to be part of this block shop-hop program which is throughout Canada, with 27 stores signed up in Alberta alone! Northcott created a google map where you can see the participating stores and their locations.
Canada Quilt Challenge: Make a quilt using at least 6 blocks from 6 different participating Transcanada Block Party stores with the Canadian Sesquicentennial Collection and enter to win either the grand prize of $500 or one of the 13 finalist prizes of $250 each. Details on this contest are here.
Sesquicentennial Quilts of Valour Challenge: Donate a quilt made from the Canadian Sesquicentennial Celebration fabric line for Quilts of Valour. All quilts are submitted direct to Northcott, from which the top 15 will be displayed at Quilt Canada in Toronto in June. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 viewer's choices. Details on this contest are here.
