June Wallhanging

My Mom's June "Button Up" is done and hanging on her door!
 I love folk art applique'.  It's fun and lends itself to funky quilting.  I love these big ol' chunky blue birds.
 As I worked my way down the quilt, I changed to pebbles around the picket fence.  When I was growing up, Mom always had a lot of Hollyhocks around the yard, against the fence, and some grew almost to the eves of the house.  This reminds me of them.
 What a difference it makes to get it hung up on the background!
So, I'm 6 days late getting this finished . . .  my hubby says I really need to start working on July this afternoon.

I just LOVE all the hangings you do for her door. And yes July is going to be here before you know it! Can't wait to see it, so get busy :)

My mom had a lot of hollyhocks, too. Thanks for the memory.
