more blogger's block of the month

this weekend I decided to get some more blogger's bom blocks done - april and may

the may block was a jewel box block which I haven't seen before and I think its really sweet.

I really love the colours in this one - those 1 inch squares might just look like little jewels :)

next time I'd definately make sure all of the 1 inch blocks contrasted more with the background !

and this is the april block - according to amy from mrs schmenkman quilts - its called triangle squares designed by grandma dexter and its block # 2041 in the encyclopedia of pieced quilt patterns !  I really like how this one turned out as well.

so that's my weekend sewing along with those slow poke hexies of course !
