Happy Canada Day! July 1 has rolled around again and I am more proud than ever to be Canadian. I profess my love for Canada each year, but this year, I am feeling even more thankful to live where I do. With what's going on south of our border and the unrest in other areas of the world, I am so happy and proud to be here in my beautiful little corner of paradise in this great country. Canada may not be perfect, but I sure wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Every Canadian should be celebrating today with great pride our country and for what it stands.
I am happy to share with you today a small "finish". This little "Canadian Pride" quilt measures about 16" x 21". It is made of 12 Log Cabin blocks (still my favourite block!) and machine quilted, the centre portion with 1/2" cross hatch and the red blocks with a diagonal straight line in each log. The maple leaf is machine appliquéd and finished with buttonhole stitch with a 12 wt. Sulky thread.
The backing fabric is one of the Canada 150 fabrics, featuring names of many Canadian cities, the perfect choice I thought!
The above two photos are a bit dark, the reds are actually bright rich vivid reds...
Peace and Love,
Linda, proud Canadian!
