April Quilts


The table quilt for April is Julie's Hidden Potential quilt. She made it out of my leftover dud letters and other bits and bobs. April is Spring, and Spring is Green.

The quilt on the bed is Jigsaw Puzzle, a Slashed Squares quilt made of "mini" blocks. These blocks are 7" square, and the quilt is made from fabrics in my stash. They weren't "scraps" but my rule for this quilt was not to cut into yardage from the fabric in my big stash. The Slashed Squares quilt is a really easy quilt that has a lot of potential.

Speaking of Jigsaw Puzzles, I finished mine. This is from I have never done an entire jigsaw puzzle all by myself. It's a good thing to do before you go to bed, assuming you can pull yourself away!

I cut up a whole bunch of four block strips from the leftover Zebra triangles, and I'll be sewing those into sixteen patches over the weekend.

I like how the die-cut lines on the puzzle look like really OCD quilting.

I love all the quilts- the color and freshness. Thanks for sharing.

Colourful table and bed quilts and the jigsaw is a stunner.

I will do a switch out of decor and quilts on Monday when the Easter bits are put away for another year. No egg hunting today as Little Man has a fever (we'll celebrate next weekend instead). Your puzzle is prettier than the photo on the site - we haven't opened ours yet.
