Blogger's BOM #8

Here is April's block for Blogger's Block of the Month. I changed it up just a little so I could have some of my background fabric in there. Amy of Mrs. Schmenkman Quilts sponsored our block this month.
It wasn't a difficult block but the seams were rather bulky in some areas. My sewing machine didn't really like them but it worked out pretty good. Once I was nice to the machine, things got better.
Here are all the blocks so far. I have no idea how the blocks will be set. It should be interesting! I like them all so far.

The mystery quilt at my guild is almost over. I have made 8 rows of blocks. Since next month is the last month of clues, I think we'll be sewing the rows together and actually making a quilt top.



These are the blocks I made following the clues for the mystery quilt. They're very similar except one block has medium prints in the corners and dark squares while the other is reversed.


 The blocks are all in rows but I'm not sure what the final layout will be. I have a feeling that every other row will be flipped around. The last clue will tell us! It's a fun way to make a quilt and I used only fabric I had in my stash. At our June meeting, we usually display all the mystery tops and it's amazing to see how different they all are.

    1. The mystery quilt blocks are 6 1/2 inches. Sort of small! I plan on adding a few borders to get the quilt top to a good size. I will post pictures when it's done!
