April blocks

I have a busy month ahead so I wanted to take care of my Lucky Stars and Do Good Stitches blocks early.

I intend to turn these into a wall quilt at the end of the year, so I want to work on making my blocks a little more colorful since I like wall quilts that are packed full of color :)  I may have gone a little overboard with the green here; I don't particularly like green and it is overwhelming me a little bit, so hopefully the rest of the blocks will calm it down a little.

Steph, who has been a member of our DGS circle since the beginning, is now a quilter and this was her first month to host.  She chose a modernized D9P block using shades of aqua, red, and dark brown.

So now I'm just wondering, how in the world is it April already?

  2. The green will probably balance out once you have more blocks made, and probably if you throw bits of green in other blocks it will help as well. They look great though!

  4. Love that green block but that could be because green is one of my favorites.

  11. Every star you make is incredible. I personally love green, so I dig that block. But, even so, I think it'll blend in well with the others =)

  12. I'm not a huge fan of green either. I think it's just a hard color for me to work with because I like it when other people use it.

    Each is lovely!

  14. I have a question regarding the April block. Did you notice that the cutting instructions are wrong on 12 1/2 inch block? Which size blocks are you making?
