F2F5: April round-up

Done with the third month already…

Well, all this staying safely at home business has certainly made getting our April blocks done a bit easier, if the photos are anything to go by. I had the last ones in days before the end of the month! It’s good to have a positive outcome from the coronavirus restrictions, don’t you think?

And what a lovely lot we have again. Lynn, you’re safe to go and look in the gallery if you want to, as your ‘peacock parade’ of gorgeous blocks is all there.

Lynn’s colours were jewel-toned peacock shades, and once again, there are some very interesting block choices. It’s going to make a spectacular quilt – or quilts!

May is Susan’s month. We are asked for blocks in red, white and blue, or blue and white, or red and white. Plenty of choice there, and for most of us, it will be easy for us to find what we need in our stashes.

If you’re new to this blog and don’t know anything about F²F, do head over to the dedicated F2F blog and read all about it. The first ever session can be found on this blog, but for subsequent years I set F²F up with its own blog due to the image-heavy nature of the work. You’ll find a rich, varied and vibrant source of inspiration in all the blocks shown in the galleries for the various years. Enjoy!

So, let’s show some patriotic colours in May.

    This month’s blocks are GORGEOUS! I can’t wait to see the finished quilt.

      It may take a while; we have to wait until we’re all allowed out to mail our blocks to each other! And then of course, Lynn has to decide how she’s going to use them.

  4. Woo hoo! I had sew much fun making Lynn’s peacock blocks. All of the shared blocks are spectacular. She is one lucky girl! ❤️❤️

  6. I love checking these out. Such a wide range of patterns. Thank you for sharing this publicly, Kate.

      I love how they provide a real source of inspiration for the future, too. Not everyone uses all their blocks to make a quilt, but when they do, it’s brilliant to be able to show the finished item in the gallery too.

    Ooh! How lovely! I see lots of people have taken the opportunity to use some beautiful batiks and there’s a few exotic creatures and plants in there too. Can’t wait to get my hands on them. Thank you to all participants – they are beautiful blocks, each and every one.

      I had such a lot of fun with these, so thank you for making me buy gold and emerald green fabrics! Not something I normally have in my stash but now I have leftovers to play with too 🙂
