Vice Versa BOM - April




I love these blocks!  I finally figured out my exact perfect scant 1/4" seam thanks to GenX Quilters great little "how-to!" The blocks turned out to exactly 12.5" square! It's a miracle. Seriously. And don't even get me started on nesting seams. Takes a bit of planning when pressing, but man it makes sewing rows together a breeze - no pinning!  Google it, you won't be sorry. ��

                            

This was the beginning of one of the blocks, adorable in itself, measuring in at just 6.5".



Once I finish May's blocks I'll be sure to lay them all out and take a group picture!  
I think this may become my favorite quilt ever!

Have you ever participated in a Block of the Month (BOM) Club?  Did you enjoy it?… were new skills learned?  This is my first ALL SOLIDS quilt.  Woah.

Thanks for stopping by!

Those blocks rock! And yeah, it's so tough to get a block to measure exactly as it's intended. Congrats!
