CQJP 2014 April Block

CQJP 2014 April Block by Renee
It is a couple of months past due, but I finally completed my April block for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project (CQJP) 2014.

Here is how it looked before I began stitching:


I loved the idea of a block done primarily in blue and yellow, as I have seen a few that were simply gorgeous.  However, once I began, I found working on this block to be a challenge.

If you follow my TAST (Take a Stitch Tuesday) posts, then most of these seams probably look familiar.  My favorite seam is the one on the lower-right corner.  Incorporating the TAST stitches into the seam work was actually a lot of fun.  When I felt particularly stumped as to what to do next, I turned to the list of TAST stitches on Sharon Boggon's blog Pin Tangle to jump start the gears in my head and grind out some ideas.

Now, I am off to can some strawberry honey jam, cook 2 whole chickens on the BBQ (we have a Traeger, so they will be smoked - yum!), and try to carve out some time to work on my CQJP 2014 May block.

Thanks for stopping by!
