It seems appropriate to share my April block for the "Play with Me" quilt along as I am returning from a family vacation in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This is my hubby, my daughter, me, my son, and son-in-law riding from the airport to the hotel.
It was a trip I'll never forget. I think my kids are as much (or more) fun now as they were when they were little ones. It's even better with one more in the family. Cheers!
I have finished my April block and I will probably get a low score...
The skill builder this month is embroidery. As I said, I've been on vacation and time was not on my side so I put Miss Janome to work and machine stitched the fancy stitches instead of hand embroidering the lines for the game, GO.
I pulled out my trusty Heat n Bond lightweight fusible interfacing to stabilize the fabric and, after marking the lines, let Miss Janome embroider away with Aurifil 50 wt to match the background fabric.
I added an extra border,
for extra credit to add a little color since I cheated this month...lol
Here are all the blocks for the quilt so far.
My hope it to give this away at Christmas...
How fun is that? A game board quilt. I have a lot of game pieces to make, but I have until Christmas, right?
April showers are almost ready to give way to May flowers. YIPPPEEE!!
Although the weather was a beauty here today. Hope yours was.
