Here is my block for April:

The heart flower was a bit of a challenge since the outer border is tiny scallops. I didn't think the flower on the bottom of the flower pot was necessary because of the fabric I used so I omitted it.  It was also so tiny!  

The house detail are larger scallops. I'm getting better, but haven't really mastered it yet.

I'm also improving on the house embroidery.  

I used a heart button for the door knob too.  

I'm happy with it!

Instead of the small scallops around the flower, I had a perfect leftover piece of lace in the perfect shade in my scrap basket, so I used that and put the french knots on the heart instead. I like how it turned out.

Janet, very cute block!  I love red so it really appeals to me. I also love the little extras Locke lace and French knots. ;-)

Patricia, your block pops. Very cute. I think you did a great job on your scallops and I'm loving your roof material. I've got to get moving on my blocks. All of you are inspiring me to hurry up. LOL
