L-8 Box Kite

L-8 Box Kite
This block was easy. Freezer paper pieced. The fabric is Heather Bailey's Finery in Cream from her first line, Freshcut. I am not sure how I found her blog, but through it I found Anna Maria Horner's, and they are great inspiration. I definitely use more color now after reading their blogs.

So kites are funny. My dad taught me how to fly kites when I was younger, and I remember flying a kite in our front yard on windy days. I even entered a competition and won a 2nd place trophy for kite flying! I also remember reading Snoopy and wondering why Charlie Brown always seemed to have so much trouble flying kites...
