April Quilt of the Month

It’s April 1st, and NO JOKE – I have our quilt of the month completed and ready to show!  When Mark saw this one, he said – ummm…except for the green, I don’t get it….

OK, here’s the translation.  The green in this quilt is vibrant – like the green we see in the new growth in spring – and it is mixed with the gray and black that we see in the stormy and overcast skies this time of year.

There is only one block used in this quilt, with one running horizontal and the next one running vertical, reminiscent of a traditional rail fence block.   My block has 3 “rails”, and each of the rails has one or two “snowballed” corners, meaning I’ve added a triangle or two to the ends of the rails. snowballed rail fence

The pattern reminds me of a formal garden, with boxy paths and gray concrete statuary.  (Check out the back.)  But this early all we see is green, rather than color from any flowers blooming yet.  And finally, the quilting pattern is clouds and raindrops.

 So here it is: April Showers in the Garden.
