As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, my husband and I spent the first half of our lives in Canada. When my son was born in the United States almost 18 years ago, one of my goals was to immediately apply for his Canadian citizenship. Sixteen years and one more child later, I finally aapplied for both citizenships last summer.
Last fall, I visited several Canadian quilt shops looking for Canadian fabric to honor their citizenship. Nope. None was available. However I did find a pattern for a Canadian wall hanging. I sewed and quilted it over the last week.
The pattern is by Patch-Abilities and it is very easy to follow. My only warning is that this wall hanging is small. The pattern says that it is a mini-quilt and only 6″ by 22″ — but, when you see it, you’ll be amazed at how small that looks.
Yesterday Canadians celebrated Canada Day — their version of 4th of July. Happy Birthday Canada!
