    What does this remind you of?

    Just got this back from the quilter yesterday, need to put my binding on. It's a simple design, but I absolutely love it, made from April Showers charm packs, it reminds me of the 50's and 60's tablecloths, aprons and sackcloth dresses. It looks a bit wonky on the top border, hope it comes out with the binding and looks like the quilter squared it off a bit for me in the lower corner, gave me a trim line to go by.

    I love, love, love this fabric and have ordered some more, next time doing a green border with some coordinating fabric.

          Love it...kind of reminds of Fiesta Ware Pottery. My DD Kat would be happy with it.

          Great job!

            You're right, I should have known that since I have tons of fiestaware. Funny thing, I was thinking about making a tablecloth out of the next april showers charms I get in.

                  Very pretty! Those colors are yelling spring and summer,now only if we'd get some of that warm weather!

                    I love it. It's funny. When I saw the "April Showers" collection I didn't fall in love with it but I have loved every quilt I have seen that used it. I like your quilting too.

                      It's gorgeous...it's old fashioned yetfresh and new at the same time because of the sashing. Beautiful!!

                            Thank you everyone.

                            I'd like to take credit for the quilting but the credit goes to someone else.

                              hahahahahaha annnnd, I heard a rumor that more snow may be heading to Massachusetts this week - lucky us! This is the quote from NOAA

                              Oh yeah, Beautiful quilt Leah, the yellow border makes it so bright and cheery (... sigh... yes, like spring)
