Her banner turned out cute, I think, and at least she'll have it for the beginning of April next year. I love the umbrella design. It is so vintage. When I finished quilting her banner it occurred to me that I hadn't displayed my own umbrella quilt yet this season.
So we hung the larger version of my umbrella quilt in the entryway and I snapped a few pictures. I enjoy having quilts be a focal point in my home. This is one of the biggest quilts I've dared machine quilt myself on my Bernina. The quilting is simple but I'm lucky it turned out okay.
The vintage umbrella border fabric just makes me smile when I look at this quilt. And I made sure to get my giant teacup into the picture. I still haven't put anything inside it yet. I'm thinking maybe a Mother's Day flowering plant would be sweet inside. What else could I put in there?
