|April's blocks in chronological order, starting with the short column on the left: 1, 2, 3 April.|
All the squares measure 4.5 inches, and most of the circles 3 inches in diameter. Special days' circles are 3.75 inches and there are three: family birthdays on 6 and 8 April, and a public holiday (King's Day) on 27 April. The pieced circles are all made from scraps, but I have cut into a few new fat quarters this month to achieve enough variety. Two of the squares are prepared, but not sewn yet! I hope to manage to sew three today, and be up-to-date by the end of the day!
I have been thinking about the layout and at present favour something like this:
|most of the circles from the first three months|
a rainbow arrangement of the background colours, although the regimented straight lines need some mixing up in the final arrangement. It definitely needs tweaking before I start sewing them together. The main trouble with this layout is that I have to find a way to include these:
|about 15 squares in non-rainbow colours|
I've also started sewing the circles cut from behind the appliqué patches onto a 4.5" wide strip and
I'm looking forward to seeing more layout ideas.
