Summer's Last Hurrah

I need a dose of color today. How about you? What do these colors make you think of?

They remind me of Kool-Aid and drippy popsicles on a hot summer day... beach toys and water balloon fights... and, of course, the last bright blooms of the season... summer's last hurrah!

The colorful hourglass blocks (1" finished) are made from Milly Churbuck's Country House Cottons and the backing fabric is a batik in Italian ice colors. The inner border and binding fabric may be an early Kaffe Fassett woven stripe/plaid.
