April Giant Block Tutorial - Giant Block Tutorial Series

April Giant Block
Happy April! I am excited to share another tutorial with you today.

April Giant Block Tutorial

This is the fourth quilt in the Giant Block Tutorial Series. I think that you will find this project to be fast and fun!
The tutorial for a 24" and 36" block is available (for free!) in my shop. Examples for using the blocks in a quilt are listed below. 

In the images below, I have added binding to the images to help show how a completed quilt would look and to help show scale.

These are some suggestions on how you can use this block in a quilt. For more ideas, look at the past posts in the Giant Block Tutorial Series. Since each month has blocks are the same size, any of the 24" quilt ideas will work for the 24" block and any of the 36" block tutorials will work for the 36" block.

  1. Thanks for this cute series of giant blocks. If you tried it out yourself, I’d be inspired by a picture of your version. Or will you be sharing that later?
