My Day In "April Showers" Blog Hop

Joan at Moosestash Quilting keeps me on my toes with her challenges, that's for sure. 

Late snow showers, rain showers, baby showers, wedding showers. 
What do you like to shower everyone with?

I like to shower people with my quilts because I might just have one or two sitting around.
When my stash of quilts gets above and beyond a reasonable storage capacity, my neighbors, 
friends, and even people who work on my house may walk away with a quilt or two.

I went with rain showers in a quilt to meet Joan's challenge.
Vintage-looking applique quilts always rings my bell, so I went searching through
old magazines and vintage poster art. I combined a few that I liked and came up with this:

Quack, Quack, Splash
56" x 68"

Fabrics: Moda Grunge

Bonus Block - Down To The Bone free block

It's amazing how different it can look with other fabrics.

Do you want to join in the BOM fun? Check out our Facebook page HERE.

How does our Bona Lisa's Sweater Emporium BOM work? 

It runs from January 1st through August 31st. 

All block releases happen on our Cackling Stitches Facebook page HERE.

We even give you the fabric requirements early to help you conjure/gather your fabrics.
You can find it HERE.

It's not a mystery BOM. We show you each of our finished quilts!

On the first day of each month, we release a block pattern (sometimes it's more than one)
 that is free for the entire calendar month. After that, those blocks go into our individual 
ETSY shops where you can purchase them for $2 each. 

New and free block(s) then appear for the new month...and so on, and so on.

Beginning January 1st, the ENTIRE pattern is available in each of our ETSY shops for $15.
We've had so many people ask us if they can buy the whole thing at once, so we decided to go for it.
If you can't wait for each block release or you don't have a Facebook page, this is for you!

We hope you appreciate the time we put into creating this BOM and understand that we keep
 the costs to a minimum for you. We ask that you respect our copyrights and do not share the 
pattern with others. You're welcome to direct your friends to our Cackling Stitches Group 
Facebook or any of our ETSY shops so they can get their own patterns starting January 1st.
