McCall's Design Star Contest

Hi all.  
I have been working on a quilt for the McCalls Design Star contest. I had to enter as a professional because of my quilt patterns and having sold the Seasonal Mat series to McCall's Quick Quilts. Anyway, here is my entry, number 31 in the professional division.

I think it turned out pretty good.  When I was in college, one day when it started to rain, the many colored umbrellas started popping open like flowers.  That is where I got the idea.  The pattern curved piecing, but could be done as applique.  I have never had many problems with curves.  After mastering the set-in sleeve, for clothing, this seems kind of easy.  

I hope you like it and vote for my entry, there is a link on the right hand side of the blog that will take you there,
