Hello friends. I hope you are doing well and taking good care of yourselves and your families. I think we’re in for quite a long experience with staying home. Yesterday I drove for the first time in weeks to socially distance-style drop off quilts! It felt good to get out of my house and feel a little more normal. It was definitely a simple pleasure! Today I’m sharing the Quilting Life Block of the Month 2020 | April blocks.
Quilting Life Block of the Month 2020 | April
This month’s blocks use a combination of half-square triangles and simple squares. These are the first blocks for this project that I was able to use my Balboa fabrics for, and I had fun playing with them!
April Blocks Tips and Tricks
The biggest key to this month’s blocks is to make your half-square triangles accurately and to also double check that your background squares are cut to the correct sizes. I used triangle paper for my blocks–the papers I used are below:
- Use this paper for the 6″ finished block.
- Use this paper for the 12″ finished block.
- And use this paper for the 18″ finished block.
April Blocks Video
I’ve decided to make a video each month to go along with the block pattern release. I’ll share the blocks and also go over tips and tricks (and give you a peek at the back of the quilt blocks. Watch above or go here to watch it on my YouTube channel.

Something New…Gelato Remix
I’ll be writing a full post on this new fun smaller quilt (perfect for a wall hanging or table topper). I was able to pick it up from my quilter yesterday…just need to finish up the binding! Patterns are in the shop now in both paper and PDF.
