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

  13. Oh look at that cute little duckie! At first it looked like a printed fabric but looking at the closeup, I can see it is applique. It is so beautiful! The circles add such a wonderful pop too!

  14. Quack, Quack, Splash is so fun. At first I thought it was a printed panel. Knowing it's applique makes it amazing!
