A Little Flag Waving!!

Thought I would share this little quilt with you today. I made it years ago, and it's been hanging just inside my back door ever since. I love it! It was my first attempt at machine stipple quilting, so don't look too closely at that part of it.


I've always loved Americana themed quilts, always admired that so many American quilters proudly use their country's flag in their work, so I decided I would do the same. I'm a proud Canadian and wanted to get a little flag waving in! Here in Canada we have a beautiful flag especially with all that red and ya know, red is my favourite colour.


Do you have a patriotic quilt hanging in your home? I would love to see it! Make a post and send me the link. If you don't have one, Canada Day is two months from today, you've got lots of time to get one made in time to show off your patriotism!

  1. I just finished making a large quilt with the Canadian flag. It is only a flimsy so far but the top is all finished. Pictures can be found here of the last post and the finished quilt top

  7. I place some of my red, white, and blue quilts out in time for Memorial Day here in the states, the last Monday in May. Then I add more for Flag Day on June 14th, and Independence Day on July 4th! I love showing the Patriotic colors of the USA!

  8. I was born in Canada, but my parents moved back to the NEtherlands where they were born when I was only 4 years old. I've visited Canda 4 times and am in love with the country, the landscape and the people. I would love to live in Canada, but with my husband and 3 kids it's not possible. But I can still display my love for Canada here in the Netherlands! Will be making a quilt like yours as soon as I find the time!!!
