Happy Canada Day!!!!!

To all my friends, near and far, hope you have a fabulous Canada Day!


This quilt is about as Canadian as they come!  The pattern is "Canadian Maple" designed by Patrick Lose.



The Maple leaves are fused on and then I machine button hole stitched the edge.  To keep the appliqué from being too stiff, I cut the fusible web away in the centre of the Maple leaf.

This quilt was sent to it's new home, but……..  I ordered more fabric so I can make one for myself.  Every Canadian NEEDS one!
