The Canadian Quilter's Association is hosting the Canada Big Quilt Bee to celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary. 12.5-inch slab blocks will be pieced together into quilts to be donated to Ronald MacDonald House.

These will go in the mail this week to join many other blocks being made all across Canada.
