Here is my finished block for this week for the Friday Block Party. See sidebar. It is called 'Flyfoot'. I used up a whole lot of half square triangles that I had in my scrap bin (happy dance!) - only had to make a couple more. Because it is totally scrappy I don't think I got the image (so much) of the swastika that Carol spoke about. But I must admit I sort of thought of that too. Too bad that symbol has come to mean hatred, antisemitism, violence and murder! For centuries it used to be a symbol that meant good. I think the Chinese call it Wan, but I am not completely positive about that. Anybody know? It stands for life and sun and good luck! You know, happy stuff!
I thought my block sort of looked like the ribbons on a May pole. And since I made it on May 1st, I am going to rename this block too! I really don't like Flyfoot! I'm calling it Dancing Around the May Pole.
