Stars and Stripes Forever

Good morning! 
I finished stitched Bent Creek Stars and Stripes yesterday and finished it up last night!
I LOVE IT!
 
Remember this Bent Creek Halloween piece that I mounted on a vintage window?
 I was so happy to see this row was the same size .. and set right out to finish it!
 I mounted the stitching on sticky board ..of course :) then added some homespun dark red gingham checks, that I tore and glued down on the back ..
 I made a bunting from navy ticking ... added some of the Lady dot creates rick rack in Motherlode (gold) cut stars out of the homespun that i had applied interfacing to ...and covered 3 buttons in a patriotic plaid homespun ..1 large for the middle and 2 small .. I tied the bunting on so I can use the window for other designs..
 I think it is going to be displayed in the top of the hutch in the family room ..
 I used these 4 classic Colorworks color floss..Blue corn , Toasted Marshmallow, Barn Door and Honeycomb ..I did the Honeycomb instead of the greyish green that had charted..
