April Showers Bring May Flowers

A fitting post for Earth Day, I'll update the progress of my Pack Patch Mini QAL blocks, hosted by Chase of 1/4" Mark. The themes this week are 'April Showers' and 'Brings May Flowers'. There's a whole bunch of nature inspiration here.

The teal print reminds me of driving rain, except prettier (wasn't feeling an oppressive grey here), and the botanics print with the graph paper and floral outline makes me thing of the promise of flowers to come.

The brighter colors on these linen/cotton blends add bit of dimension to this block. The spattering of flowers makes me think of the first blooms of spring. Birds are returning, the sun is shining, we're coming out of hibernation.  


  1. Good thoughts on these blocks. Love them!
