Canadian Flag Pixel Heart Quilts

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.

The pattern for this quilt can be found at Daydreams of Quilts, Etsy and Craftsy.

I am also accepting custom orders for these quilts. The listing for those can be found here.

Canadian Flag Pixel Heart Quilt designed, pieced and quilted by Anita LaHay of Daydreams of Quilts.

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. :)

    3. Hi Sheila!
      My craft fair is being held in Wainwright where I live but I am doing the White barn market in Thorsby in August (12th and 26th) and the Etsy Pop-Up at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton in September. :) So maybe we will meet up at one of those events!

      The Wainwright Mother's Day show is the 5th and 6th of May at the Communiplex where the ice rinks are . There is a great restaurant just down the street from there called "The Honey Pot" which has a five star rating on "Trip Advisor". So if you were to decide to make a day trip that day I would recommend "The Honey Pot" for lunch. :)

      Thank you for visiting my blog and sending me such a nice compliment in your comments!
