I finished stitching the last umbrella this morning while the kids decorated the tree. After lunch (yummy turkey enchilada soup) I decided to find the sewing room and see if the machine still works! The good news - it does!
I didn't have a 'rainy' fabric so I went with light blue and they might be sun parasols. We will see how they want to be quilted if they want rain drops or not.
This below is the template I have been using. I just drew it onto paper with a sharpie. I turn it over to get it for the umbrella handle turned the other direction. I also drew some with the under part and some without. I used 6 inch squares.
