I remember kite flying as a kid. Thanks for the pattern.
You're welcome and thanks for visiting.
What a wonderful story that goes with the inspiration for your block. It's a very pretty block. I like the birds and the strings.
You created a very lovely block and I love the quilted details on the kites and the clouds. I really enjoyed reading about your memories of kite flying and what it means to you. I think that makes the block even more special. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you so much, Tish.
I love that there is such a variety of techniques in this hop. What a wonderful block ilt for a child's quilt.
What a wonderful way to preserve your childhood memories. And I really love that you have photographs of your kit flying, too. The block is so sweet, and great tip to trace the cloud in reverse! :)
Thanks, Yvonne. You're a wonderful person. Thanks for all you and the other hosts do for us.

The applique block is great and makes me think of a real summer's day. I am terrible when it comes to flying a kite but love to watch others, I enjoyed your story
Such a wonderful block!!! It reminds me of when we lived in Guam when I was a young girl and I would fly kites on the beach with my Dad!!! I like that paper you used as well!

Thank you so much, Diana. I was nervous at first when I saw everyone's block. So much different than mine. But I think this is the beauty of this group, so much talents.

So creative, and easy for someone to personalize, too, if they wanted. Your story behind the block added the last dimension, and tied it all together for me. Thanks for sharing.
Personalize-that's a great idea. I didn't think of that. Thanks, Julie, for stopping by.
