Since I already had everything out when I finished March’s Murder Mystery Quilt block, I figured I had better go ahead and complete April so that I don’t get behind again. This month did not disappoint – not only was it fun to sew, but putting these blocks together left a little “fudge room” just in case your pieces weren’t stitching out perfectly… so my finished pieces are THE CORRECT SIZE (finally!).
This month’s block was called “Snail Trail” and wound up being a cool looking, “pinwheel” design (we’re all guessing that they might eventually become shields that are found on the sides of Viking ships). Overall this took about a day to complete, but if I had to sew this up again, it would definitely go faster as I feel a ton more confident about sewing these up now that I have these under my belt!
