You see, a little bit ago I was asked to make a Union Jack Pillow for a friend's daughter. It was a birthday gift.
But this friend has another daughter, with another birthday, so a Canadian Pillow was ordered :) I had a great time making this pillow. The quilt block is from Cheryl Arkison's Oh Canada! pattern.
I loved learning Cheryl's slab technique. For sure a method I will use again.
For quilting, simple straight lines and the maple leaf is machine appliqued. And on the back, some strips from a previous project found a good home.
I love this little pillow, I hope it's new owner will like it too. Do you have any Canadian themed projects on the go, or even sewing plans for the Holiday weekend? I am going to the MMQG Sew In, looking forward to a full day of stitching bliss!
