Umbrella Quilt

My friend Kim and I have decided to make a quilt together for one of the ladies in our guild (Foothills Quilters - we call it Foothills) to win.  Foothills is currently doing a Block of the Month together and there is a lotto type drawing done each month where one lady wins all of that month's blocks.  Kim and I thought it would be fun, if at the end of the year, all the ladies who had made blocks but hadn't won any, got a second chance to win.  We decided to make this month's block - an umbrella block - into a quilt for a lucky second chance winner.  The drawing for the quilt will be at our Christmas Party in December.  I decided to make a sample quilt as a sort of mock-up of the quilt we're working on since I love this little block so much and wanted to have a quilt for myself too.  Here's mine.....I think it's pretty close to what the second chance quilt will look like.

Linda, I was wondering if you were going to put the umbrella's all the same direction. Your quilt looks great, can't wait to get my hands on the back ground fabric. :^)
