April Blocks

It must be Spring Break because I am dreaming of the ocean and sandy beaches and warm sunshine! No beaches for us this Spring. We are visiting my sister in PA and I think it might be colder here than in Michigan!

Anyway, my theme for the month of April is the sea. I'm sending each of you 7 layer cake pieces an one 2 1/4" WOF strip from Tula Pink's Neptune line. My post in our Flickr group has some pictures and inspirations, so go check that out.

Here are the basic guidelines, though:

1. Be inpsired by the sea

2. Use the Neptune Fabric only (if you need to add one more fabric to make your vision complete, use a solid-ish white)

3. 12 1/2" pieced blocks, no applique this time

4. One or two blocks (whatever works)

5. Know right now that I will probably be thrilled with your idea and execution, so relax and have fun!!


  1. Yes! Another fun adventure with this bee! I have a couple of ideas in mind. Look forward to getting your fabric soon, Kelli!

  2. I am also in love with your inspiration quilt. I posted a lot of the blocks in it as inspiration for my month in the Mod Quilting Bee.

    Actually... Rita (the girl who made it) is in the Bay Area modern quilt guild with me, so I'm hoping to get to see it in person sometime. She lives a bit far away, though, so she hasn't been able to make it down to any meetings yet. Here's hoping, though!

    I love the Neptune line, too, so I'm really looking forward to working on your blocks. :)

  3. What a treat to be able to see the quilt in person! I'm a little jealous :)
