Vintage Blooms - April blocks

The April blocks for my Vintage Bloom sampler are ready.  This time I didn't bring out all the other blocks to photo together.  My triangles aren't keeping their points as well as they did in the beginning either.  LOL  It must be my attitude --- these blocks are getting more tedious, but I'm still intent on the hand  embroidery.  Each month calls for 2 new blocks, I am duplicating one extra block each month so I will have a 30-block setting at the end of the year.

Once my May blocks are ready,  I will have reached the half-way point with this quilt top.  Phew.  If you don't want to make it with the traditional triangle piecing method, Gay has also provided a alternate version using the paper piecing method.  You can still get all the patterns for this project free at

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Your blocks are looking beautiful!! I love sitting and doing hand stitching such as this in the evenings, although I have not done anything for quite a while.

  2. That's a lot of points and probably you are working them on the bias which causes this. I think they are lovely though - great setting for the stitcheries.

  3. That is a big task you have taken on. The blocks you showed look lovely.

  4. Boy, I understand tedious and losing points! I think your blocks are lovely, and I think the hand stitching adds so much meaning to a quilt top. Hang in, you're at the halfway point! :) Thanks for linking to Main Crush Monday.
