    Roma, Great colors..nice fabric choices... You might want to just replace the corner triangles... I did a lot of ripping this am and cut 6 in blocks and the triangles worked great - easy to square up to 12-1/2"

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

    Good Morning, after ripping the borders and wrong corners, and replacing the correct corners this is the result.. I did look a point or two, but overall I learned a lot with this month's block

    Nice blocks. Roma, I agree with Judy if you are not happy, it just looks like if you replace the final corner triangles it will be perfect. Mine seamed a wee bit small I should have cut the squares larger I still might. Love every ones fabric choices.

    Thank you to our hostess & QB members for teaching me how to build blocks for a future quilt so that I will have time right now to finish other quilts in various stages of progress.
    Peace,

    April's Aster

    I finished my block the other day, took my pictures, then forgot to post them. So here is my April block along with the first three months. This was a challenge. not the y seam, but all those different triangle sizes. I admit, I had to start it over. The first block was way off. Didn't even finish it. But this block did turn out 12 1/2". Ready for next months. Katie

    I finished my block today. I had to make a few adjustments, but other than the outside border it came out pretty well. Thanks to everyone for the information that helped me put it together. I even did the y seam the first time. I see a little bulge, but hey you guys keep saying others won't see it anyway. (Except quilters, of course). Name:  DSC_0947_2069.JPG

    I am finally caught up with my BOM. I really like doing this and have enjoyed playing with my collection of Black and White fabric.

    Ladies............You have posted so much "Eye Candy" that I can hardly believe my own eye's!! All of these blocks are so pretty & what great work everyone is doing too. All of the color & fabric combinations are terrific. I can just imagine all of the beautiful quilts that we will have at the end of the year. We will need to have a quilt party of Show & Tell. Keep up the good work.

    I feel so bad having signed up for this BOM and then not getting started on it. But I still have 8 months to catch up. On the few hot summer days that we will have, I will stay inside where it is cool and make a block a day! Love all the pictures. In a way, I am glad I was behind because I really like the idea of only using a few of the same colors for each one. That way they will all coordinate in a quilt. :-) I will keep watching for now.

    I fixed the block I showed you earlier by removing the borders I had added to size it up to 12.5" I added the corners -- in the right place, It took several tries until I remembered your tip to use larger HSTs to start with Dede, thank you for your help! I welcome any help anyone can give me with these BOTMs. I'm fairly new to quilting and have only made one quilt on my own that didn't start in a class. You can't offend me by suggesting where I may be messing up. For example, if anyone thought my block maybe was too small because I didn't turn it the right way or added the corners wrong, please tell me and I will appreciate it.

    It ended up 12.25" compared to the rest of them which are 12.5" I'll have to figure out how to make them fit later.

    I made a Mug Rug with the original block I had struggled with so long. I did get the square in the center to lay flat but I had to trim it down.

    I used a lot of the scraps I had left from paper-piecing several blocks to make the back of it:

    Cas,

    The block looks great! As for the slightly smaller size don't worry until you start to stick everything together. Your printer might have sized them slightly smaller. If we have more paper pieces you may have a few that are the same size. That is how I usually get at least one row. Sashing is great for concealing oops.

    All the blocks are wonderful, color and fabric combinations are just the best.

    Can't wait until May, who is deciding May...we need a hint or two.

    Hugs,

    My BOM storage box. Got this at Walmart at Christmas for $6 I think. It's for storing ornaments. Works great for my BOM. The fabric goes in one part, and 12 inch blocks lay flat in the other. Everything stays together and is easy to grab. I'll definately pick up a couple more this Christmas.

    WOW!! Your Double Aster block turned out really nice & I like the added border around it. It really sets it off nicely. You sure got a good bargain on the ornament keeper for your fabric's & completed blocks for the BOM 2013 project, or any year as far as that goes. All four of your blocks look so nice together. Keep up the good work. Before we know it, it will be time to see the BOM for May, I can hardly wait!!

    Wasn't looking forward to trying this block, but managed to finish it this afternoon..... not perfect...but who is? I actually had to turn the radio off so that I could concentrate on the placement of the pieces.... my colours are following me throughout the year. Name:  P1060213 (Small).JPG

    Great Block everyone,

    Feathers-n-fur the first picture is day-glow love it! I know camera do strange things but the four of them look great.

    Thimblebug6000 yours make me think of hugs and kisses, very comforting.

    This one was definitely a challenge for me but that what we are supose to be doing, streching ourselves. Remember its only fabric, if I mess up its a excuse to buy more!
