“EH!”
 by Berene Campbell

"EH!"

Berene Campbell is a graphic designer and published pattern designer who recently moved from Vancouver to Toronto. She is a member of both the Vancouver and the Toronto Modern Quilt Guilds, and enjoys collaborating and connecting with the quilting community at large. In response to the craziness going on in the world, she initiated “To Boston with Love” peace flags project which hung at the MFA Boston, and more recently the “Quilts for Refugees” project in Toronto. Her goal is to spread a little kindness, in the hopes of helping to make the world a more peaceful place.

Berene teaches quilting in Toronto, encouraging her students to find their own creativity within.

Inspiration for “EH!” 

When asked to design a block for this project I wanted to somehow represent the human side of Canada. My graphic designer roots always veer me towards text, so I thought a word design would be fun. A culture's vernacular really sums up it’s every day people. Canada’s unique words say a lot about the salt of the earth nature of it’s people. As an immigrant who didn’t grow up hearing Canadian slang, I find it very endearing. When someone in a plaid shirt cheerily tells you a story ending in “…eh?” you just want to hug them. So this was my inspiration. I ended it with an exclamation mark instead of the usual question mark as I wanted it to be more of a statement of awesomeness, and about how much I love it. EH!

Inspiration for From Sea to Sea

I love half-square triangles and felt that a two-colour block would showcase how great these different sized triangles looked together. The block reminds me of the different contrasts you find in Canada: French vs English, city vs country, hot weather vs cold weather, sea vs land and the list goes on and on. Canada is a diverse, beautiful, accepting, intelligent country and for all of these reasons I’m so proud to call it home. Happy birthday Canada!
