April BOM

It's only the 21st of April and my BOMs are done, done and done. 

This is the block for lqs Overbrook Quilt Connection. Finally, one that is not so drab. Guess that's what a little purple will do for you. I took liberties with this block. The outside corners were supposed to be turned around and next the the red star and I really thought that the star would be lost with those lighter, orangy corners next to them.  Other than that it is made to specs.

This is the block for Quilter's Paradise in Baldwin City.  Another brightly colored block. I'm going to like this quilt. And since I have NEVER put together the blocks from previous BOM projects that is saying a lot about these colors.

This is the block for Quilting On The Square in Holton. These blocks will make a very bright quilt when they are put together.

Here is a link to the blocks I did last month just for easy access to see some of the others.  March BOM  and February BOM . Going back further and you're on your own.

And last but not least here are the 24 blocks that are available at Barristers' Block . I'm all caught up and impatiently waiting for the next group.  The blocks on the right side are the blocks I did last.  They are certainly brighter colors than the first blocks. It was getting a little dull for me so I put in more bright greens and yellows. I also plan to make more of the backgrounds darker colors.  Looking at the pictures it seems a little bland or light background to me so I will spruce them up a bit.

Happy Sewing

How wonderful to be all caught up on your BOM blocks. I'm envious. I still have 2 blocks to go on a block exchange. Time is ticking away. I like all your bright colored blocks.
