Hurray for a finish! Tis the season for crazy busyness.
The special lady I made this for celebrated her birthday this week.
She requested shams to go with, but I just couldn't get them done in time. I did however, get to hand the quilt over on her birthday!
This quilt is my rendition of this beach umbrella quilt.
I stuck with a much simpler quilting pattern. I simply stitched in the ditch between blocks and then through every other "wedge." I didn't want to distract from the bright umbrella tops and my swirlyness has not yet been found in quilting.
I once again chose to get creative with my backing. I wanted to use up the leftover fabrics from the top instead of ordering more fabric. It turned out really fun! All of the fabrics came from Connecting Threads... LOVE THEM!
So, here she is in all her beauty!
You can hardly see the binding, but it is done in a sunshiny yellow.
This quilt measures about 85 x 85.
