Licorice Allsorts part 2

Easter felt like my own personal quilt retreat just for me.  I got so much sewing done!

I thought it might take me until the end of April to piece all the blocks for the Licorice Allsorts quilt, but I sewed every day over Easter and they're all finished now.  

I revisited Month 3 and remade one of the blocks, but it's not a lot better than the first time around.  I've made a note on the pattern to cut the pieces bigger if I ever make that block again.  

Now I'm sewing the blocks together and thinking about how I'm going to hand quilt it.  I've just ordered a very pretty backing from a local shop and will show you it when it arrives.

Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  Feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

So very much enjoy your posts, Wendy. The embroidery on these blocks is spectacular against that black. How unique this design is!

Oh, beautiful! Allsorts is the perfect name for these delightful blocks. The colors are fabulous together!

Your Licorice Allsorts turned out fabulous, Wendy! Are those shot cottons you've used for the pieced blocks? They simply GLOW!
