Would You Like Some Peppermint Bark?

Good morning!

Fat Quarter Shop has a fun way to start the week! 

This is a new pattern that you can download called

The first thing that comes to mind with the name of peppermint bark is
the Christmas holidays...
but although the pattern looks great in traditional and non-traditional 
holiday fabrics... they asked a few bloggers to put their spin on the pattern!

So of course, I thought I would use soft Spring colors...
no surprise there, right?

What I really love about the pattern is the cross center...
and then the bonus of the pinwheel within the cross.

It also has at swoony looking star... so those elements combined
made for a super fun, super-sized block!

(but not too big)

I added a bicycle border to add to that 
"perfect day for a picnic" or "let's go fly a kite" look!

I think it will make a nice wall hanging or patio table table cloth!

And with all the fun new Christmas fabric starting to arrive in the stores...

I am sure to find something fun and make a larger size 
quilt for fall or next winter!

Couldn't you just see this made up in Fig Tree fabrics??? 
Be sure to take a look at the You Tube video
on the Fat Quarter Shop link and also get a copy of the 
Happy Monday! 
Enjoy the rest of the blog hop...

and I wasn't kidding...

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

Your post wasn't on my blog list until Tues, therefore didn't get to see it till this a.m. Except for the preceding rant by "Boycott...", I enjoyed the post today, love the quilt done in soft spring colors, very nice. The bicycle border was perfect for Spring. I always look forward to your blog, count it as a sweet surprise when it pops up. You always have something interesting to say or just a great quilt to view. Don't let negative rants spoil your day, there is always the delete button to help you forget them. Stephani in N. TX (
