Fleur de lis blocks

So since I finished a bunch of orange blocks over the weekend, yesterday I was itching to try my new fleur the lis accuquilt die, so I figured WHY not make 4 blocks and catch up on the Jan-march blocks with this die and of course do an april block too.

So I cut out 4 different squares and added heat n bond to the back of them and put them all thru the cutter!

Then I had some light grey fabric I cut to 6 1/2” squares (cut all 12 so I have them)

and I decided to do a small zig zag around them

here’s all 4 done!

easy peasy

(They are really not THAT wrinkled in real life)

You know what though, I also have the sunbonnet sue and the owl die that would be really cute in the Color of the month!

The sunbonnet sue I have the embroidery CD too, it can add some neat stitching on each, so hmmmmm

Should I do it?

(BTW I cut into yardage for the orange)

I must be “bored”, actually I do need to start an april project for Island Batik AND a project for accuquilt for May, but I got 24 days right!?

The fleur de lis blocks are adorable. My daughter-in-law would love a quilt with these blocks.
