    1 April 2012 Calendar BOM Pattern & Discussion

    Hi all, and Happy Spring. This is Jean and I have the distinct honor of picking April's pattern. I hope everyone will like it and try the applique. I'm in Oklahoma and Spring has hit - a wee bit early for me as far as the heat is concerned! We're supposed to be 90-92 tomorrow! But then a cool down, which is fine with me..;o) Cheryl hope it's ok that I went ahead and posted it.

    Here is the pattern site:

    I hope you won't have problems opening it, if so, holler. Hope you enjoy making this, I just wanted something 'Springy'..lol. and not to difficult. Here's the photo.. Enjoy.

    I love the block. I hoped it would be applique. I have a fear of applique that I really really need to overcome and this is the push I need. I plan to do needle turn applique for this block. I think I will use a light green background...

    Thank you Jean, it's a great block! I think I have a tulip print somewhere in my stash, will have to go dig it out for this.

    Hi Jean, The fabric that you chose makes the block appear more delicate and feminine than the original. It's gorgeous!

    What a beautiful block for April......love, love, love it!
    Could you tell me what the stem measurement is (template A)? If mine printed out correctly, I will work on it tomorrow.
    Thank you for this BOM.....I'm really enjoying all the blocks.

    Ya'all, I am having troubles getting the pattern to print. I printed the templates but I can't get the cutting and assembly instructions to print. I don't have to have it I can write the info down but it makes me crazy not getting it to work. I've done it like five times and it just keeps printing out one page with a small picture of the block and the pictures of the comment sections. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
    Thanks.

    Thanks so much, Jean. I love this pattern. Applique is my favorite. Your block is beautiful.

No one is so rich that he can get along without it. No one is too poor to feel rich when receiving it. It is rest to the weary, daylight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad and nature's best antidote for trouble. Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen."

    Andii - I just hi-lited the area I wanted and hit CTRL-P. That will bring up your printer selection. Tell it to print selection. It should print only what you hi-lited.
