Fireworks Wall Hanging

I'm celebrating the nation's birthday this July 4th with a spectacular Fireworks wall hanging!

Created over the last week, I've teased everyone plenty with sneak peeks - hope it has exceeded expectations!

Inspired a week ago Sunday by this image from a craft store ad, 

Fireworks inspiration

I just knew I had to make a fireworks wall hanging. A 4th of July celebration just wouldn't be complete without one!

After working out the concept with paper templates, appliqueing with fabric was easy, as shown with the teaser pictures last week. And now it's time for closeup pictures of the finished Fireworks wall hanging!

Aren't these fireworks just bursting with happy celebration?

There are also sprays of stars in the border,

meeting up in the corners.

Notice the red/white striped inner border, adding a pop of Americana.

And last, the back, a fun patriotic pinwheel fabric.

And you too can have oohs and ahhs over this fireworks display in your own home! The bursting red, white, and blue Fireworks wall hanging is now available as a pattern in my Craftsy and Etsy stores. Though it may be a bit late for this year, right now is a great time to take advantage of the patriotic prints still available in stores - a head start for next year. Time to go shopping!

Happy 4th of July!
