Stars of Freedom

I finished this patriotic small into another firecracker. I'm thinking these tall ones will be cute tuck pillows for the back row of a basket. 


Design ~ Stars of Freedom
Designer ~ Erica Michaels
Fabric ~ Daffycat Dyed Scrap
Fiber ~ DMC


My double twisted "fuse" turned out much nicer this time. I (yet again) used those cute buttons I found at the quilt shop. This design is a freebie by Rainbow Gallery, click that for the link. I converted the colors to DMC and changed even more by using yellow instead of one of the reds. Best of all, the perfect finishing fabric was in my stash! This was a really enjoyable design to stitch once I had the thread colors picked out. I used 312, 728, 304, and 3865.

Adding on...apparently, RG doesn't have the 2002 freebies listed, it is shareable so email me and I can get it to you.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Adorable and so timely. They will be cute in a basket, or even leaning against a table arrangement, maybe on the mantel. Enjoy
