Up parasol!

Last weekend was quilting serendipity for me. Friends came to visit, bringing with them a lovely FQ bundle of Heather Bailey's Up Parasol as a thank-you. Then I stumbled on a quilt-along being hosted by Gnome Angel and the mini pattern she picked called for nine fabrics - just like in my bundle! Fabric fate!

With a two-week timeline for the quilt-along, I soon got cutting. I decided to change the pattern a bit to preserve the lovely birds, and then I figured I'd do the same for the flowers. Today I finished piecing the top and I love how it turned out. The fabrics are so bright and cheery and the birds are perfect.
