Patriotic Points Wall Hanging

Fabrics in reds, creams, and blues turn simple blocks into patriotic patterns that are stunning when combined into a Americana wall hanging. An impactful star block in the center provides a shining focal point. Fabrics are from Linda Ludovico’s Stonehenge: Stars & Stripes collection for Northcott.
