April Showers

I woke up to a nice rainy day…..so I decided to get my new Rainy Days and Mondays fabric that I just got by Riley Blake Designs and make an “April Showers” quilt.
April Shower Quilt

A new quilt for a rainy day

This was just a super quickie, big easy blocks inspired by ???.  With the grey blocks on each fabric, it makes me think of rain bouncing off the concrete sidewalks. I eventually want to stitch cute little umbrellas on the yellow fabric but for now it is hanging up to enjoy during the month of April. With the smaller strips that were left from cutting my blocks, I have almost finish making a table runner too.  I am feeling all ready for April. This is a great quilt for six 1/4 yard cuts.  I took a WOF strip that was 8 1/2 inches high and sewed it to a 2 1/2  inch strip.  I sewed three of the strips to the top and three of the strips to the bottom.  After they were sewed in strips together and pressed, I cut them into 6 1/4″ wide blocks.  Then off to the design wall to place them in a pleasing manner
