    2015 - April Block of the Month - Photos

    I used templates for mine so the cards would each be all one piece.
    I've attached a templates file in case anybody else wants to try it.
    Even though the cards are put together using inset seams, it was actually easier for me than trying to match up a lot of half and quarter square triangles.

    I really like the look of this. the first time I tried it, i made it with triangles. the second time, i used squares and rectangles. i didn't like the look of either one. my current project uses inset seams and they aren't too difficult with a little practice. thanks for providing the templates for this.

    Thanks for sharing this! I've always liked the block, but not all the triangles. This is great!

    Oh! Nice block Patrice. I wish I had waited for photos before I cut out all those triangles, I may have used the templates too.

    Very cool...I will give it a try even though I hate partial seams. I like the look of it being solid.

    Thanks, Patrice, Glad I waited. I also like the look of the 1 piece so I'm going to try using your templates. Plan on at least cutting this out today.

    I lost mine! I remembered late yesterday afternoon I put it under my cutting mat to keep it flat. That's too funny, hiding it from myself!

    Finally! I struggled a lot with this one. I re-sewed the blocks so much I wore them out and had to cut them down to 4" blocks and add a border. I even had to remove and sew that a couple of times.

    Thank you, Patrice, for another great block! Following the grid sure helped until I got overconfident & messed up on the last corner. Kathryn, I almost used the same green bubble fabric that you used but, I just didn't have enough to go with it! LOL

    Thanks Kathryn, I almost wish I was doing that one again. I'm working on a really hard 15" block now.
