Brocante and Kids Quilt

My newest quilt for the Kids is from my stash. If you click on the picture you can probably see the prints. They are not new, maybe from the late 90's but with the plain blocks broke it up. Have put the rest of the fabric together for the backing. Will show the completed quilt when I get it quilted.
This is a closeup of a corner of the Brocante to show the prints and fabric better. Now I can't find the name of this charm set but it was sent to me for Christmas this past year by my dear friend Kim, Also with yardage the border fabric and the blue which I used for the background. The fabric is Park Avenue by 3 sisters for Moda. There is still another stripe which could be used in another quilt.
I put it on this dark fabric to try to show it off better. The colors are very soft. I tried to put the blocks in a way that the stars would show. Love this pattern so Thank you Sinta for picking it for this months mini. Hope to get it finished soon.Thank goodness the tornados didn't visit close. Although they did have some warnings up. Plenty rain though. The temperature was in the 70's today. The grass will really be growing. I at least got some leaves raked yesterday. It was so nice out I just had to get out and do something.

I'm still having problems with the pictures uploading but got it done the old way today. Probably be getting some dogwood pictures in the next couple days. Some of the little trees are starting to bloom. Thanks for visiting and hope your day has been good.

Those colours are beautiful - it's a lovely blue. We're in autumn here but it's still nice when the weather is good enough to get outside!

Very very pretty! The border fabric looks really good with the pattern.
