Design Wall: Independence Day Project

I picked these up last week at Busy Bee Quilts in Edgewood, NM for a door hanging.
 Blue, red, and white Michael Miller Fairy Frost.  The white is so reflective, it almost looks like it isn't there, but it shows up better near the bottom of the photo.

The design is still floating around in my head, but when I saw my sketchbook right next to it, I knew it would deserve some fun quilting.

I'm going to take a break from other projects today and work on this one--as soon as I go to the fitness center and finish exercising and stop by Busy Bee for their birthday sale. Their little shop has been open for five years and is the only quilt shop on this side of the mountains.  There have been other nearby quilt shops that have opened and closed because they were oblivious to the fact that the only thing they really had to sell was service. Busy Bee's owners understand the importance of friendly, high quality service.  Probably their biggest area of business is their block of the month clubs.  I'm going in for some of their $2.00 fat quarters (Monday and Tuesday), some 20% off fabric, drawings, and, maybe, some birthday cake!

I'm linking to Judy's Design Wall Monday, here, because this is what I'm designing.  Clicking the "Home" button just beneath the header will take readers to posts that are probably more inspirational than this one!

Happy quiltmaking and knitting.....

I love those fairy frost fabrics! I have them in white and a couple shades of pink and coral. I think they give such a fun shimmer to things. Can't wait to see what you do with them!
