Layer Cake Sampler Quilt Along # 4

As I was away trading at the Laura Folk Fair I had four blocks to complete to catch up in the Layer Cake Sampler Quilt Along. As the HST blocks are all made I only had to arrange the blocks and sew them together. Still they took me awhile to complete as I got distracted part way through the second block but they are done. Another job crossed off the list but I am thinking I might have to make a quilt with just HST in it. to celebrate them. They do such a good job in a supporting role in many blocks. So why not make them the star. Stay tuned for that quilt.
 Block 13
 Block 14
 Block 15
Block 16

I can't wait to put all these blocks together, we are getting close to completing all of our blocks and soon we will be assembling the quilt. 
Until next time

Globetrotting Block of the Month #4

April's block is San Juan, Puerto Rico. From the pictures Pat shared in her block post it looks like a lovely place to visit. Once again the HST have appeared. This time in the pinwheel blocks. It is a good thing I like them. Here is the next BOM completed. I wonder where we are going in May. I hope it is a sunny place as the weather cools down here in Southern Australia.
Until next time

Wishes Quilt Along - Aprils Block

We are already 14 days in to April and I haven't started any of my April blocks. It seems I have been too busy, so on Sunday I decided that is it I had to do some if not all. I know it is a little ambitious on my part but I had to try. I started with the Fat Quarter Shop Wishes quilt first. It was nearly completed when I had a thought, half square triangles are playing a big part in my quilting world at the moment with this block and the Layer Cake Sampler Quilt (which is all HST) plus I was playing around with a new design featuring batik fabrics and they make appearance there to. When you take notice of them they do appear often. One of the most used blocks out there I am thinking. Here is my block for April.
Now I better get to the next one. 
Until next time
