When You Wish Upon A Star, You May Get A Hero…

Wish Upon A Star Blog Hop

Today I am participating in the Wish Upon A Star blog hop hosted by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt.

Her fun idea says our project needs to include a star somewhere in the project.

With this hop, I thought about what I could do carefully, and when you see it, hopefully, you’ll agree, it’d be great for Memorial Day, Father’s Day or even the 4th of July…

I’ll be releasing the pattern tomorrow morning along with another cute little pattern I’ve done for the 4th of July. In the meantime, enjoy my project for today.

I’m just going to get to the nitty and the gritty. I did this both on my embroidery machine and on my sewing machine. My lettering is a little bit too big for the embroidery machine, but I am happy with how it turned out either way.

I used Island Batiks in this project and while I know the purple is probably a little to Oddish, I was trying to stay away from black… but now realize I should have just gone with the black background.

The artwork for this project is from Too Cute SVGs.

I will be releasing these two patterns probably tomorrow morning. I will post about them tomorrow along with a tutorial from Electric Quilt.

I’ll be giving away 5 of the My Hero Patterns.

Giveaway ends Sunday, May 27, at 11:59pm
