Block Exchange

This is my finished April block for the block exchange. The requirements were something April-ish and to use the umbrella fabric.
I don't often do any applique, so I am very happy with how it turned out. I am making an extra one of each block (every month) to make myself a sampler quilt. This month mine is exactly the same, since all the fabrics were mine. The block owner said we could keep the supplied fabric if we liked it, so I kept enough for my own umbrella.
I think this also quelled my urge to make a sunbonnet sue quilt!
