Let's Book It - April 2015


Where has the time gone?  Not only the month is almost over, but it is the 4th month of the year - already!  And Spring has not happened here yet.


I love this book and could make every quilt in it - really.  I will be re-visiting this one in the near future.

This was the project I chose for the month of April.  What is really nice with this book is that Pat has a chart for each quilt in various sizes - baby, lap, queen, king.  So the math work is all right there for you.


I had to resort to an indoor photo as the weather has been horrid for outdoor photo sessions.  I decided to go with a 6 X 6 block setting which made this 72" square.  It didn't even put a dent in my 2.5" squares, but I did a great job at depleting the strips. As tempting as it is to just call this done, there will be two borders added like in the book. 

Remember - large projects can be broken down into workable monthly sessions and used for Let's Book It each month with show of progress.  Now I could carry this one over to next month for those borders, but I have another project/book I want to visit.
