150 years

March 17, 1861, Italy unified its provinces to become one country.

Schools are closed on Thursday to celebrate the 150th anniversary.

The organization, Quiltitalia, had its members make log cabin blocks and unified them to make an italian  flag. I made three blocks. It was exhibited for the first time in Vicenza at Abilmente.

the patchwork flag was set up as a carpet under the table
then overlaid with other 'tre colori' works

Canada will celebrate its 150th anniversary soon. I want to do something for the country related to patchwork with my new group, Ad Maiora Canada.
