Four Seasons of April

 It has certainly been a strange month so far.  We've had snow (Winter), rain (Spring), heat (Summer), and blowing winds (Fall).  And I see we are expecting snow again this month.

Well enough of the bad weather.  Let's talk quilts.  I've been working on a few projects.  Here they are.

1.  Pat Sloan's Home Is

This is a block of the week.  And the blocks are all different sizes.  If you are interested in making this quilt all the blocks can be found on her blog.

2.  Barbara Brackman's Hands All Around.

Directions are given for 8", 12" and 16" blocks.  I have chosen to make one of each.  At the end of the year I should have enough blocks for a couple of quilts.

3.  Barbara Brackman's Ladies Aid

This is block number one.  The pattern calls for 15" blocks with hearts appliqued in each corner.  I decided to make the blocks 12" and will try a different setting.

4.  Fig Tree's Strawberry Sampler Mystery

Yes you are right.  It is a new BOM I signed up for.  Thank goodness some of my other projects are at an end so I have time to do another.

5.  Lexington BOM

This BOM comes from Connecting Threads.  I love the fabrics.

6.  Quilt Doodles 2021 BOM

I still need to do the button hole stitching around this block.

7.  Ready for Spring

Top is finished and I have to figure out how to quilt it.  I love how it turned out.

8.  Shine On BOM

Just 4 - 6" blocks this month.

That's it for now.  I have to take some more photos of projects I will share at the end of the month.  I know I have lots of projects but they are usually only a few blocks each month.

I've started working on my UFO for the month.  It is Barbara Brackman's Yankee Notions quilt.  I had all the blocks made.  Today I cut and sewed the sashing.  Then I need to add 2 more borders and it will be done.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you found something you liked.

Hugs, Cathy

Love your little house block. That is going to be such a lovely quilt with those colors. Ready for Spring turned out really great. I had to go look up Quilt Doodles. What a fun winter quilt this is going to be. You sure keep busy. It's a happy way to spend time.

Each unique and a great addition. We had 4 inches of snow yesterday. Winter just won't let go.
