How I made this quilt top:
2 fat quarters of Riley Blake Umbrella fabric - each cut into six 9"x6.5"
2 fat quarters of other Riley Blake that matched - each cut into twelve 4.25"x4.25"
12 grey strips, 4.25"x1.5"
I swapped out a couple of my dozen 4.25x4.25 blocks with other fabric and placed these randomly.
I placed the umbrella fabric rectangles in four rows of three, and made sure that every other rectangle was upside down, and space them for the small rectangles.
I sewed twelve 4.25x4.25 squares to each other with the light grey in between, resulting in my small rectangles, which I placed in between the umbrella rectangles.
The sashing is grey - 2.5"x35" on the sides (trimming extras) and then 3"x36" on the top and bottom.
I'm using a polka dot binding.
