April blocks progress


This week I have been focussing on my April, Some Kind of Wonderful blocks. Here is the tree. Thanks,  Anni,  for the very tricky needleturned flowers! 
 I am now working on the stitching on the rainbow block.
These are such lovely blocks and it will be a delightful quilt.

Yes, and I thought the daisy was tricky. Not sure I'm looking forward to doing this one, but it will be fun to try.

Fiona said...
