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.
