    Caroline, that's really pretty! I wouldn't have thought such a large print would work, but it really does!

    Here you go Jenn. I auditioned the black, green and red fabrics for sashings. Did not like them as they were rather dull. So I pulled some hot pink strips from the scrap bin to pull the pink color in the roses. I am liking it now. It will be interesting to see what it will look like after December.

    Wow Caroline they look great together. Just a thought what if you used a black sashing to tie the blocks together inside and then used the pink as outside sashings... like a big picture frame ? Just a thought. I love the way the block patterns pop with your fabric on the black. Fantastic job anyway you do it.
    Have an awesome day!

    If I had some black on white polkadot or check fabric I might audition them for sashings. That would make a wild quilt! But we have a long way to go to December.

    WOW.........I am so amazed at all of the gorgeous April 2013 BOM blocks that have been shared in the last few days. Everyone is doing a fantastic job making their Double Aster blocks. All of the color combinations are so pretty & would make a beautiful quilt if all together. Keep up the good work everyone!!

    At first I wasn't going to do this one, but I found myself with more time on my hands, plus having a good machine to sew on makes the work go quickly. This was started and finished in one day!

    I am so glad that you decided to make this block after all, as it couldn't have turned out any nicer!! Your color combination is really nice too & to say that you made it in just one day, WOW. It's a beautiful Double Aster BOM block for the 2013 year. Thank you so much for sharing with all of us.

    QB Block-of-the-Month, April 2013- Double Aster Photos

    Oh my gosh, I completed this month's block. I pp it thanks to Dede for the pattern. My printer must be off a little, so I just added log cabin strips to make it 12-1/2"

    Wow. Silly me when I looked at others block, I realize I had added cornea to wrong sides, no wonder block was too small.... Funny how sometimes things just do not click the first time around. Maybe I will redo...just to prove to myself that I can. Lol

    Judy...........I really love the look of your Double Aster block with the cornea turned in a different direction. Your fabric's & color's all go together so nicely & play well together. If you decide to make another block be sure to share it with all of us too, as we love to see pictures!! Good Job!!

    Diana.............Your block is awesome too. I love the black background, it really sets off the pink & white fabric's that you have used in making your block. Are you using the same color scheme in all of your 2013 BOM block's? All of the pretty blocks shown so far, are going to make gorgeous quilt's by the end of the year. I can hardly wait to see all of the combinations together. Now we wait until the May block comes out!!

    Cathy I love your block. I like the contrast between the dark and light colors! The background brings out the small amount of similar colors in the aster perfectly!

    I made this twice and it turned out 11.25" both times, but the second time I did get the center to fit in.

    I'll make a mug rug of the other. I like the colors better in this one for my quilt.

    Did I attach my sections wrong? Is that why it was small? I added more background fabric to it so it would be the same size as the last three blocks.

    Judy, your block is very pretty, and thanks to you I now know why mine was too small. I did the same thing. I used the same fix as you. I'm still having a hard time visualizing where I should have attached the small square, but I'm happy I won't go nutty trying to figure out how my block could be so much smaller!

    Sorry, I should have indicated on the paper piece where the large triangles should have been sewn. But I love the new look. Cas, I love your colors.

    Thanks Dede!

    Judy, our blocks are not sewn wrong. We just need to remove the extra frame, turn them so the center looks like a diamond and sew the corners on. I un-did my first one to see how I should have attached the sections and just could NOT figure it out, then held it up to one on the screen and realized it was right! So it's laying there in the right order now, ready to re-sew. The bright side is I changed the color of the center so it pops more.
