It's a "Wild" Life BOM - April Blocks - The Big Tree and The Little Tree Stand Tall Blocks

Because tomorrow is April 1st and Easter,
released her design for 
It's a "Wild" Life Block of the Month
a day early.



The Big Tree and The Little Tree Stand Tall Blocks

You can find the patterns in Carol's Craftsy Pattern Shop
by clicking HERE.

Aren't they cute?! 

THERE IS NO NEED TO CHANGE OR ADD A THING TO THESE BLOCKS!!
They are perfect for the quilt.

Carol explained the Block of the Month like this: 

So what is a "Block of the Month or BOM?
The Sew Incredibly Crazy design team creates blocks to share with you.
They are free the month of their release but will have a small fee after that.
You sew the blocks we design using your own fabrics.
There's a theme to our craziness and we'd like you to be crazy with us, not off
on your own, so please try to keep your blocks looking pretty close to ours.

Did you miss the first two months?

Here are my versions:

February-

Thank you to all that made my block design sing!!



I'm using fabric from my stash this year.
These blocks are perfect for extra fabric laying around.

All the blocks are free
for the month that they 
have been released.
After that, there
will be a small fee.

Let's get a little "WILD" together
BUT
be nice and show a little respect!!


My 2 cents...

This is my blog and I can say things here I wouldn't normally say on social media...

(My deer block was really abused by some (a few) last month)

If you don't like the block, follow the GOLDEN RULE and do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  Just don't do the block.  Please don't butcher a designer's work. Being creative and adding your own touch is one thing, but changing the block completely or doing your own thing is unacceptable in a BOM.  Become a designer and make your own BOM.  Don't destroy mine.

I'll soon do a post on Block of the Month etiquette for online quilt alongs.
I feel like something needs to be said because some people just don't get it.
Don't ruin the fun for others!!

Now let's get on with the fun...
