April Aurifil Designer BOM

So I know, April has come and gone, but with all of the secret sewing I was doing last month, the Aurifil BOM kind of slipped through the cracks.  But I am happy to say I am now all caught up!!!     April was all about Red-Purple and  Sue Marsh designed this super fun block called A New Direction block.    Isn't it just so fun with all of it's triangle goodness!!

This block was a lot of fun to put together.  I don't often work with equilateral triangles in piecing, and I forgot how fun they are to sew together.  I just love all of those super happy points!!!  And when they are tiny like these, that just makes it all the more fun.  I think I need to make an entire quilt of equilateral triangles one of these days, add it to the list ;)

And the block went together super quick once I finally picked the fabrics from my scrap stash.  Even though purple is my favorite color, it is the color I have the least amount of scraps of and finding the right Red-Purple shade was a little tricky.  But using my  Aurifil 4020 Fuchsia as a guide made it easier to find just the right shade.  And don't you just love that polka-dot background!!!   I just love me some polka dots ;)

So that is my Aurifil April Block, better late than never!!!  You can find  Sue's pattern complete with templates for this block right over here and then be sure to pop over here to read Sue's interview.    

Now I am all set for June!!!  Can't wait ;)    

Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!

  1. I really like the block, the colors and most of all the fabric. I know it came from your stash, but will you please tell us what they are?

    1. Hi Carol, The darker purple is from V & C's Simply Color II line and the lighter purple is a Cotton and Steel print. The background polka dot is from Holly Holderman's Sweet Things fabric line.

  2. Great fabric choices! I love the red-purple.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
