Hi! I was hard at work on Sunday finishing up my Canadian Flag Pixel Heart Quilt. I really wanted to see it finished. I have written a pattern that has two versions: A Canadian flag heart and a Canadian flag IN a heart. I have sewn both but only have photos to share of the first one so far.
I am also accepting custom orders for these quilts. The listing for those can be found here

My Canadian Flag Pixel Heart Quilt! I am already looking forward to having this over my lap at the fireworks this year. :)
It's quite handy that we have this giant Canadian flag pictured here in the background within walking distance of the house for a photo shoot prop. ;)
I quilted the heart with cross hatch quilting to set it apart from the background.
The background is stipple quilted. I bound it with text fabric. I don't think I will ever tire of text fabric.
The backing is my long treasured little doggies from "Sherbet Pips". I didn't have quite enough so I put two strips of Craftsy's Boundless Ombre fabrics down the sides.
The other option in the quilt pattern is a flag in a heart. I have sewn this one as a Quilt of Valour and am entering it in Northcott's QOV challenge. I haven't managed to get it quilted yet.
I certainly am proud to be a Canadian and I am so pleased to have this pattern released in time for my fellow Canadian quilters to sew quilts before Canada's big 150th birthday celebration this summer. :)
