April's Stitch-A-Long blocks....

The Stitch-A-Long hosted by Chookyblue and trusty sidekick Susan is doing Anni Downs new quilt pattern "Nature's Journey"

This month there are two little circles
(these blocks are 3 1/2" square)


.. two bees....


....a  dragonfly ....
(6 1/2" blocks)


... two flowers....


... some cherries ....


... and a star ....


I am enjoying playing with these blocks and doing a bit of fussy cutting

using French General 'Lumiere de Noel' fabrics...


Chookyblue is hosting a retreat at the end of this month.... anyone can go at no cost (except for your materials and your wine, and your snacks etc)  .... it's a virtual retreat ... pop along HERE to read more about it...

Also Chookyblue's friend Jewells are looking for some quilts to be donated to people who have been flooded in NSW... read about this HERE...

I love your FG fabrics! I too am using FG but added in the blue from my stash of FG fabrics. I like yours better! I like that you have done tone on tone too. Your finished quilt is going to look amazing!
