Off the Wall? Nope, On the Wall!
See that little quilted piece on the wall under the framed picture? It's a small wall hanging I made a couple of years ago, and I really like it. But the fabrics I used in making it are definitely of an "autumnal" hue. With our summer season approaching (we're still holding out hope), I wanted something that said "green and growing" more than "end-of-the-season-wrap-up."
New piece done, new piece in place.
When my daughter saw this being made she thought it was something for Christmas. Hey, reds and greens can be just as much summer colors as Christmas ones!
The block I chose is an old one called, simply, Flower Pot.
I wanted bright colors of summer, but also wanted it to coordinate with the colors used in the framed cross-stitch hanging above it.
This little project has been on my Wanna-Do List for a while. And now it's done!
