Make sure to visit Judy, our hostess for Design Wall Monday!!
Most of you remember John Wayne from THIS post .......at the time I made this one, I had no idea what I was going to do but as the 4th of July company visited on and on my mind began to wonder....don't get me wrong, I love family but after all the laughter, BBQ, potato salad, beans, pies, and iced tea.......I needed some down time.
I tipped-toed to the sewing room to ponder and pulled out some cowboy type fabrics. I squared up John by sewing strips around him and trimmed to 12 1/2 in. square.
I chose one of my favorite fabrics as the "kite" design. Normally, the kite would be a square piece of fabric (a foundation, if you will) with the "kite" drawn in, then sew varied size strips of either side.
Here's a sample of each block. I love the look of it. I added the rawhide/cowhide fabric to opposing corners.
First audition arrangement....BTW....this is a fractured diamond design.
Second audition arrangement.......which one looks better, do you think??
