Umbrella Prints improv

umbrellaprintsquilt3

A while back I showed you the start of this quilt, and here it is as a completed quilt top. Usually I have an idea of how the quilt will look in the end, but on this one I went into it without a plan and was really just winging it as I went along.

And as it turns out, I’m happy with the result. It has a bit of the look of Jacquie and Katie’s Tunnel Vision and it still fulfilled my goal of creating a quilt using just the Umbrella Prints trimmings and added solids.

As a lucky coincidence, Lizzy House’s Twinkle print has similar colors (and I had some on hand!), so the backing was a no brainer. Now I just have to find some time for my temporary quilt baster (thanks Morgan!) to get this one ready for quilting!

    Wow, this is lovely. Is that yarn-dyed linen for the background?

    Love the clean simplicity of this one. I have to admit, I went online and bought two umbrella print scrap packs after your initial post. Still waiting for them. Look so fun. :-)
