April Showers Jelly Filled

A few months back I saw the cutest Jelly Filled quilt on @saracecilquilts Instgram feed (BTW if you don't have one of her ladders yet - GET one!  They are great!).  She made her's out of April Showers and I knew I had to make one just like it!

I started cutting 3 - yes 3 - Halloween, Christmas, and April Showers.  I love this pattern.  Takes 1 jelly roll and some yardage for borders.  I made a scrappy one a month or two back for my sister and didn't add borders.  Its a great fast quilt if you need a gift too!

Out of the 3 I have my April Shower's quilt sewn, quilted and bound.  Eerie is close behind.

I used a newer quilting design called Water Drops

And used my favorite navy polka dot for the big big border!  Add a little stripe binding (I LOVE all these stripes from April Showers)

And the cute umbrella print for the back - and I have myself my new favorite quilt!

This was a sneak peak on Instagram.  So glad I have a finished quilt for me!  I can't remember the last time I finished a bigger quilt for myself.  

I was wrapped up watching the Bachelor finale in it all night long!
