January Showers Bring…… Umbrellas!

Yesterday I decided to load a quick quilt on the frame.  A very cute umbrella quilt from Ronda at And Sew it Began.  But of course I had to take a quick project and complicate it – as I talked to myself I decided I should do a different background fill in each block.  There are 30 blocks.  My brain can quickly think of about 10 fills and then it gets stumped.  Oh yeah I also decided to alternate the fills between something with straight lines or grid work vs a more flowing or rounded design.  Needless to say I had out all of my modern quilting, doodle quilting and any other book that may give me some more ideas!

Here are the photos – Ronda will get her quilt tomorrow when I see her in Wimberley for our Fire Island Hosta Retreat – she is our chef!

We have been having some fabulous weather here in South Central TX – lots of sunshine and 70’s my kind of weather!

Have a fabulous day!
