Great block, Sandy. Are you making 2 quilts? It looks like you have 2 different colors of backgrounds?

Beautiful, Sandy! I really like the way the lighter value pink in the roses brightens the flowers!

I finished my April BOM last night. I used Sharon Schambers foundation / glue method for the applique and by the time the block was finished it was very stiff. I even used the foundation paper for the berries. I kept telling myself that it would soften after being washed but I admit I had my doubts. I filled the sink with soap and warm water and left the block soaking while I caught up on some chores I had neglected all day. Like magic it softened. I checked again this morning and it is still soft after completely drying. I really like the foundation paper / glue method for needle turn applique. Will post a picture when I get home from work this afternoon. Sandy TN

The April blocks are beautiful. I have made 22 of the circles and will get the rest done tomorrow. I have picked out the fabrics for the rest of the block. I am dying to get to it, but have to finish a Quilt of Valor so I can get it and 3 others sent off. Too many projects. :roll:

Oooo and ahhhh... what more can I say? Your block is gorgeous! You certainly are talented; I can see your art "background" in your color choices! Nice work.

It's amazing the depth Sue Garman achieves in these designs with the layered stems and leaves.

Beautiful, Marge! :D I think the circles you added to the stars really made a big difference! And I, too, like Suzanne's method for bias stems!
