In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Canada, and as part of the inaugural Canadian Craft Biennial organized by the Art Gallery of Burlington and Craft Ontario, you are invited to submit a quilted square to be included in The Canadian Sesquicentennial Quilt.
Participants are encouraged to share their ideas and memories about their region and of what it means to be Canadian. We are seeking submissions from all across Canada.

Squares should be made of fabric and be 12 x 12 inches (30 x 30 cm) or 6 x 6 inches (15 x 15 cm). No other format will be accepted. The squares will be assembled to create The Canadian Sesquicentennial Quilt. The quilt will then be exhibited as part… of the Biennial.

A brochure will be available providing the list of all participants.
