Design Wall for 4th of July Monday

Okay it isn't red white and blue, but it is as bright as fireworks, don't you think?

These are the blocks I'm adapting from the Jaybird pattern, Hugs and Kisses. I made a template for the diamond window and I really like the way it looks. The fabric is a sky one with the silhouette of birds but from a distance it looks a bit like water. Either way is fine with me.

Going through my strips I love rediscovering fabrics I've forgotten I had. This one cracks me up -

it is an old KP Kids fabric - pigs all dressed up! I have a rather abnormal love of fabrics that have animals in clothes. I blame it on my Catholic upbringing which gave me an exaggerated sense of modesty - LOL!

I hope to spend the rest of my afternoon knitting and stitching and watching a marathon of the BBC program Top Gear - so funny!

Happy stitching-
carol fun
