Block of the Month Quilt – March & April

A short post for the next two months of the Block of the Month quilt.

I got an early start on March & April blocks, which completes the “sampler” blocks for the quilt.  These months were completed quickly as they each consisted of a set of 12″ blocks.  When I first started the quilt, I wasn’t sure about including these blocks at all as I liked the monochromatic and consistent look of blue only, however after I made them I decided that I liked them after all.

I got to make some flying geese the traditional way for April, which I had never done before.  I have to admit that I was dubious when I only looked at pictures of how to do this, but they turned out nicely.

Sampler blocks complete!  However, this is only approximately 25% of the whole quilt.  May & June months are for the stars that make up the main part of the body and assembly.
