My friend April of April Mae Designs who has made a block or two for my quilt alongs is doing a block of the month that just started. Here's the link to the instructions:
I love how April adds little touches of embroidery to give her blocks personality. But it is that embroidery that causes me stress. I even recently tried it again to see if it was as challenging as I thought. Suffice it to say that there was much weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. Okay, maybe just a lot of grumbling. I will try it again in a few years, but not today.
It doesn't look like there is a lot of embroidery, so if you have a better relationship with it than I do then you should do her block of the month!
Check it out and see if you like it!
