    Red face QB Block-of-the-Month, April 2013 - Double Aster

    Yea! It's April Fools Day so you must decide "IS IT OR IS IT NOT" the correct post for April! Now you all know me by now....so here we go.

    The Block for April 2013 is Double Aster located at the link below!

    http://www.quilterscache.com/D/DoubleAsterBlock.html

    Now don't panic, it's not a hard block at all. Just follow the direction photos exactly and you will not have a problem. Below are my cutting chart because I do not care for the way Marsha cuts her blocks. When I follow that mine never come out with the right measurements. Could be just a mental block on my part but I'd rather cut each size myself.

    CUTTING CHART: It was easy to put together just 1 "Y" seam at the 2nd to last seam I used the colors listed in the block.

    Color #1 (Purple) 2- 5 1/8" square...cut in half for 4 HST

    Color 2 (Orange) 2- 3 7/8" square..cut in half for 4 HST

    Color 3 (Aqua) 2 - 2 3/8" square cut in half...4 Sm HST;
    2 - 3" square ... cut half 4 Med HST
    1 2 5/8" square

    Color 4 (Black) 2 - 2 3/8" square cut half...4 Sm HST
    6 - 3" square cut in half 12 Med HST
    2 - 5 3/8" square cut half 4 Lg HST


    That's all folks! Happy April Fool's Day!

    Hugs,
    Cajun

    Love this block, it was one I was going to try soon. I also agree, I have to move my needle to make a scant 1/4 to get close to a 12 1/2" block when I do Marcia's blocks.

    Jaba...........All of your blocks look so wonderful put together like you are showing them. Your color scheme is so pretty. You did a great job on your April 2013 BOM block & it couldn't go nicer with the other's. What a pretty quilt you are going to have!!
