The Maritime Houses quilt was initially inspired by the weathered and colorful houses found in the Maritime Provinces of Canada. When Northcott introduced their Crackle line of fabrics, it was the perfect choice for this project.
As I began working on the house blocks, the world was faced with a Global Pandemic and families were forced to isolate in their homes, bringing new meaning to this project. Our homes are where we traditionally find safety and security, which was never truer than it is now. Worldwide Quilting Day took place at the outset of Social Isolation in Canada and quilters across the country took to displaying their favourite quilts outside their homes to show the world the ways that quilting binds us together. Quilts are the heart of our homes, so they had to be a part of this project inspiring the sashing.
