Last Minute

I can't believe that tomorrow is May 1st.  Two new May  blocks for the Blogger Girls BOM will be posted, and as of today I had not yet done the April blocks.  Thankfully, I got them both done today.  Here is the first one:

And here is the second one:

The difference between  the two block patterns is the the top block has the "house" shapes (in red) pointing outward, and the bottom block has them pointing inward.  I made one other change to the second block and that was to use a "square in a square" (the purple and yellow) instead of a plain square for the center unit.

These blocks are really fun to do, but choosing fabrics can be a little tricky since the pieces are so small.  If you use a larger print, it can get muddy looking.   I placed a quarter in the next photo to show the scale.  These little cuties finish at 6 inches.

I'm not going to bother putting away the 30's repro fabrics, and hopefully I will be more timely with the May blocks.
