Finished: April Showers Plus Quilt

Yes!  It's finished!

It features fabric from Bonnie & Camille's April Showers line and several low volume prints (including my coveted chicken wire fabric).  The circular quilting compliments (at least I think so!) all of the right angles in the quilt.

Backing is a crossword print I found on clearance!  Yay for cute backings that are awesome!

I was tempted to wait for yardage so that I could get the navy bias stripe for the binding, but the solid navy stole my heart.  Love how it gives an edge to the quilt.

Quilt measures roughly 52" x 60".  Quilting done by my LQS, Cutting Edge Quilts and the quilting design is called "Champagne Bubbles"

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Best, Kate

PS.  Anyone else use PicMonkey?  I love it, but it no longer supports my browser... and I didn't feel like upgrading tonight... please don't steal my pictures :)


  1. Wonderful finish! Great fabrics and that quilting pattern is brilliant!

  2. Nice job! I agree the quilting is genius ! The crossword puzzle fabric is definitely fun!

  3. Super cute!! I just got a layer cake of April Showers, and I can't wait to cut into it.

  4. How cute! I bought some April Showers, and don't know what to do with you mind if I copy you?:) It's so pretty.

  5. What a great quilt! How cool that you used a new line of fabric and already have a finished quilt from it. I agree that the circular quilting is the perfect accent for the squarishness of the crosses. Gorgeous!

  6. This is such a pretty finish! I love B&C fabrics, and this quilt really shows off that fabric line. The crossword print backing is awesome too!

    Thanks for linking to Needle and Thread Thursday!
