And another one’s down…

…another one bites the dust! I finished another UFO this week, before the Independence Day holiday it is intended as a decoration for. (Never mind that I started it before last Independence Day! Ahem.)

Here it is completed. It measures 21″ x 23″, and I added four navy tabs to hang it from. The red and white flowers are wool felt (I felted it myself because I couldn’t find the correct colors in an affordable quantity)…the rest of the project is cotton.

There is some beaded embellishment on this one…

I think I may have showed you a progress shot of it with this borders….

Which I decided was too busy to my eye, and needed the solid red to separate the embroidered/embellished panel from the busy piano key border. Not to worry…those star blocks didn’t go to waste…here they are on the back:

With the exception of the small navy stars on cream…the border prints are all from Sandy Gervais’ Red, White and Bold fabric line. Love her seasonal lines! The navy blue on the front and back, the red Kona cotton, and the small star print all came from my stash.

  1. It looks terrific – and you’re doing stuff I want to try – like the beads and felt.

    I’m hoping it does rain this weekend so I can quilt rather than garden….

Let me know what you have to say on the subject....
