BOM ~ April

Just finished the April set of blocks for Amy Gibson's free Block of the Month class on the Craftsy website. This month we learned English paper piecing. All the hexagrams are sewn on by hand. I had a bit of a struggle with the block on the right, arranging and rearranging hexes until I had a design I liked. Part of it was the busy background fabric, but I'm running low on the prints with the white background. I may have to buy more. I'm using fabrics from a fat quarter bundle called "Fresh Flowers" by Deb Strain for Moda.

And here are the blocks so far, in no particular order:

What beautiful fabric! Reminds me of summer, very warm and cheerful. Nice job with the block arrangement. I have to get going on mine.

Thanks, ladies! I'm going to try to take a group photo of the blocks at every step, to help me remember which arrangements look good. I love the colors, too, and there are quite a few fabrics in the bundle I've not yet used.

Sue, I checked out your blog, and love the blocks I've seen so far (and the doll!).
