April 1st QAL!!! No foolin!

Good Morning everyone and welcome to the April Quilt Along. Has Spring Sprung in your area?  It sure has here in Idaho....the flowers are just bursting with color!!!  And speaking of color......
I have to say I really loved the variety of color that came along with this months challenge.  I for one stepped out of my normal zone and used colors I don't normally use.  I used the 30's Playtime Charm pack but decided to use it in my daughters room because these are her colors.  It was actually fun stepping out of the norm for a change!

Okay so for next months challenge I asked Mickey, who has been doing these challenges since I believe either the beginning or close to it , to pick the pattern for next months challenge and It is a pretty one...I can't wait to make this one!!! So stay tuned because I will post it at the end of the parade! hehe  So here we begin with the April Parade! Be sure to leave some love for these hard working ladies!!! 

First up:  Robin Chose such lovely colors of Red, green and tan....just love this combo!  Really pretty!

Mickey used such soft pastel spring colors and made her pattern just a little bit delicate!

Kay decided to use colors to brighten up her home and the funny thing is I used just about the same colors!!!  Love this Kay! Great job on the quilting too!!!
Sandy used a really pretty color combo that reminds me of a beautiful garden of Purples and pretty Sandy!
When I received Lauries quilt the first thing that came to mind was Mardi Gras Colors!!  To go along with March madness. Check out the quilting, love the lines.....  I really love the bright colors....just so very cheerful!
Susan made a stunning quilttop that really pops!!  the Brown crosshatch is really complimentary to the really makes it stand out.....just lovely.
Susan used really pretty soft colors so great for early spring.  It would be pretty for this time of year for sure!!  Love it!
And now mine.....30's playtime fabric and red and white gingham binding. 
And now for the pattern for next month!!! It does come with a bit of cutting and piecing but what would a quilt be without????  I have been thinking about colors for this one.....what about you? And if you know others that would benefit joining our QAL, invite them...they can jump in at anytime. 
  I know you have been waiting for it....hehe, here it is!!!



  1. Lovely quilts, everyone! It's fun to see the same design in so many different fabrics and colorways. I sure enjoyed my first time joining in and I'm looking forward to making Sugarplum Stars.

    1. Thank you so much for joining us! Looking forward to your next quilt!

  2. All of the quilts look great- so pretty. I love how amazingly different they look- such fun!

    1. I agree with you! The ladies did a great job!

  3. WOW! Those are all so beautiful, and my the work that you ladies do in creating such lovely quilts. Every one is unique in it's own special way. Wonderful!

    It was so nice to come by for a visit Tilda, it has been much too long.
    I always enjoy seeing your beauty.

    Have a beautiful weekend~~

    1. Stop by anytime. I am going to try to be better at blogging! Thanks for the comment, it means a lot to me!

  4. Hi Tilda,
    I think it's so funny that our quilts look so similar! Were you peeking in my window! LOL! All the quilts look great!! Love seeing how different they look just changing up the colors. I'm looking forward to making Sugarplum Stars. I like the idea that a couple ladies have had made their quilts square the past couple of months. May make mine square this month.
    Thanks so much for hosting the QAL! So much fun!

    1. LOL Kay, it is kinda funny! I agree I love how everyone makes it their own. Your welcome, I love this QAL. It gets me making quilts instead of dreaming of making them. Glad you've joined us!

  5. Such beautiful quilting. It's amazing how the same pattern can turn out so differently based on the fabric used. I wish I could quilt like that. I took one class and it didn't turn out well lol! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
