Happy Canada Day

 
I pieced this quilt top a few years ago, it has been in the closet for so long waiting to be quilted. I finally got it out and did the quilting to have it ready for Canada Day. It sure feels good to have this quilt completed. The Canadian flag has the maple leaf and red and white.
 
The pattern is designed by a local quilter. I love the nine patches in the sashing.
 
Boo just wanted to say "Hi".

Happy Canada Day!

So beautiful, Wendy! Are you heading out to a parade today? My daughter is in the MEI Eagles marching band here in Abbotsford... we're sure hoping the rain holds off! (Although I DID just buy some cute new rubber boots...) Have a great day!

Gorgeous quilt, Wendy. So nice to have something finished. Love the red and white combo, it's one of my favourites. And black and white Boo is perfect with it. Happy Canada Day. I see a small speck of blue in the sky here in Victoria, so maybe (fingers crossed) we might have a partially sunny day.

Tell Boo hello from me! Best wishes on your Canada Day. In the U.S. we will be celebrating independence on July 4th this week with parades and cook outs. Looking forward to it all.

That's a perfect quilt for Canada Day. It's just what I've been looking for. Can you share the pattern name and designer and where I could get the pattern? I could wing it from your picture but I'd rather give credit!

Donna said...

Your quilt is lovely!

Haley said...

I like the red and white nine patch in the sashing too. Lovely!

Googling maple leaf quilt patterns yesterday and yours was one of the first images that popped up on my screen. My Dad is turning 80 on July 1st and I would love to make this quilt for him if you could let me know where to find the pattern? Thanks. Denise at writeright@sasktel.net
