Dara Beth: So far I've got one block done.
Nice block Dara Beth.
Thanks Bonita! It came out much better than I expected!

Thanks Kris! I'm thinking that I might go to the small hexes for the second block. It will mean that I have to make more of them, but it will give me more room on the block to construct something... I'm thinking about trying to make a basket.
My hub's grandmother made quilts with foundation piecing. She used a fabric to piece on and then put a backing on and tied them. I litterally "used up" a cotton quilt she gave us when we got married. I loved the weight and it was "the best" for putting on the ground. Now that I know how, I plan to make some for our grown children families. Hers really folded up nice for taking with you. Loved the weight of it, too.
Here's my April blocks along with the previous blocks. I'm running out of the background medium yellow so I've started using a darker yellow and will carry it over into the next months.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
Your blocks are beautiful. Love the colors.
Judy T, your blocks are beautiful. I love the grass fabric you selected. This is going to be a beautiful quilt.
Judy T-Bellingham:Here's my April blocks along with the previous blocks.
Judy T - your blocks are gorgeous. I am not looking forward to the EPP but will give it a try. Your quilt is definitely one you should have displayed during the winter. It will cheer up everyone who sees it.
Beautiful blocks Judy. Nicely done.
I see some people have offered suggestions to solve your printing problem. DH didn't have any answers--this is something he has not had a problem with.

Very nice blocks, Judy. Your colors are great!
Judy, this is going to be a beautiful quilt. Like the darker yellow (golds) you're adding. Can't wait to see it finished.
Thanks everyone for your lovely comments on my April blocks. Although I don't care for English Paper Piecing, I did find the handwork rather enjoyable. Marge P, I don't have a clue what I'll do with the quilt when done. But your suggestion of hanging during the winter for spring color is a good one. The Pacific Northwest can be so wet and dreary in the winter.
I am looking forward to the May log cabin blocks.
Has anyone had any problem in downloading the instructions??? I watched the video today and click on class instructions and got sent to something about google and wanting my password. the craftsy password doesn't work so I have no idea what password or why this is coming up this way. All the previous months I just clicked on the PDF file and the everything went smooth as class. It is pretty obvious that the rest of you got the instructions so please tell me how.
Patricia Faye, Judy, Claudette and Dara, love your April blocks.
I am holding off making mine because I'm thinking about doing something other than the sun beams. I just completed something similar for my April BOM calendar insert. I am waiting to see if I can get some ideas from all of you. Anyone else thinking about doing something other than the sun beams???
