My positive thoughts for spring aren't working very well these days. We are heading into our fourth snowstorm for the month of April (with a prediction of another 6-12 inches). However I will think positively. By the end of this mystery series it will be spring in North America. I can almost guarantee that.
In today's post we will continue on with the April Showers mystery quilt. During this session we will draft our raindrop block (I refuse to change it to a snowflake) and set it in the quilt.
If you missed designing and piecing the umbrella blocks, you can catch up here.
April Showers Free Piecing Instructions
With the April Showers mystery Electric Quilt project and quilt, I am teaming up with Tina Dillard the owner, designer, teacher and publisher of Quilting Affection Designs.
I will share with you how to create the quilt in Electric Quilt, and Tina will share with you how to actually make the quilt on her blog. I am super impressed with her techniques. I will be pulling out my Studio 180 Design rulers to try this myself.
