As you can imagine these are not in high demand in Iowa, so I sent my sister-in-law in Canada a shopping list. Thank you!
I have a plan. When I was thinking about how to represent Canada, I thought about various symbols of provinces, and historic events, and roots. In the end I realized I couldn't possibly include everyone and everything in one quilt and I really didn't want to leave anyone or anything out. Then it occurred to me that the flag represents it all: the people, the history, the landscape. When I think of the flag, of course I think of the iconic red maple leaf. The maple leaf represents all Canadians, no matter our backgrounds and where we live, so I ran with the maple leaf theme.
I hope it translates well from this printed size to a throw quilt size! I also plan to applique "150" inside the large leaf and maybe quilt province and territory names somewhere on the quilt.
So, does anyone want to sew along?
