Canada Flag Rag Quilt, Handmade Cotton Flannel Quilt, Throw Size, 50" x 74"
Share your love of Canada with this handmade rag quilt, in a convenient throw size.
The Canadian Flag Quilt features a background of black and white check fabric. One huge strip-pieced maple leaf, in the bold red and white of the Canadian flag, decorates the center of the flag quilt. The maple leaf applique is made from strips of 100% cotton flannel fabric placed on the diagonal. The maple leaf block is bordered with 2 rows of red plaid blocks at the top and bottom of the quilt, resulting in a Canadian quilt in a vertical orientation. The back of the flag quilt features horizontal rows of red, white, and black checks.
The Canada Flag Rag Quilt is made with 100% cotton, yarn dyed solids and plaids from the Mammoth and Shetland Flannel collections of Robert Kaufman fabrics. These cotton flannel fabrics are incredibly soft and thick, weighing in at 6.4 ounces per square yard. The soft, cuddly fabrics have the beautiful look and feel of wool, combined with the easy care of cotton. The quilt is lined with 100% pure cotton batting from Quilters Dream Batting. The back of each quilt is made up of the same quality flannel fabrics as the front.
Generous, 3/4" exposed seams yield a thick fringe around every quilt block. Each block is machine-quilted in a 2" grid pattern, unlike traditional rag quilts whose blocks are held together by a mere 2 rows of stitches. Decorative stitching around the perimeter of each quilt ensures extra durability. Every quilt is washed to enhance the decorative fringe. The fraying process will continue, causing cross threads to shed, until the quilt has been washed several more times.
