The nine-patch block has been around for hundreds of years and is one of the reasons I chose to use it for this quilt to commemorate Canada’s Sesquicentennial Anniversary. I also chose to incorporate an appliqué into the design to highlight the maple leaf, the most recognized and important symbol of Canada, representing unity, tolerance, and peace.
