Another May UFO Finish

Watercolor Spring has made it to the Finish Line! The pattern is called Strait of Georgia from "More Fat Quarter Quilts" by M'Liss Rae Hawley and it was inspired by a fat quarter bundle I bought from Keepsake Quilting in 2004. Watercolor Spring is my May Finish for the 13 in 2013 UFO Challenge hosted by Aunt Marti@52 Quilts in 52 Weeks. You can see other UFO Finishes in the May Parade.
Most of the fabrics in this top are from a Hoffman line called "Morning Mist". The florals are gorgeous with their softly shaded details.
I found this pretty pastel confetti background fabric which adds a little interest to the top. It was professionally quilted in March with a large floral panto.
The daffodil fabric was my favorite in the fat quarter bundle and I found some yardage online to use for the border. I was very happy to have enough left over when I trimmed the backing off Shabby Strings to cut the binding strips.

I'm not going to show you the polka dot flannel backing! I think this will go on my wall next spring.

This was the scene in our screen porch yesterday. My husband was restringing his fishing rods and had lots of help from Tucker, J-Meow and Jax! Somehow the old fishing line kept coming out of the plastic bag...
