Good Morning Quilt Block Mania Fans! Welcome to this months post for the Rainy Day Quilt Block.

What is the Quilt Block Mania Blog Hop?

Each month, a group of designers get together and create blocks around a specific theme and color palette. We then share the block patterns with you for FREE. It’s a great way to meet new designers, try different quilting techniques and have some fun along the way.

Rain, Rain, Rain

I don’t know about you but I love a good rain. Things are starting to green up a bit in Wisconsin and before you know it, April showers will bring May flowers. I can’t wait. If you haven’t guessed it, the theme for the April Quilt Block Mania hop is rain. This month, the colors are tonal blues and greens. It really captures the feeling of an overcast day. You can find this color palette and more at Design Seeds. It’s a great resource for color inspiration.

April Colors for Block Mania

Rainy Day Quilt Block

I wanted to incorporate an umbrella and rain drops in to my block. I also wanted to keep things sparse, as I thought this would be a good block to try painting with thread. Maybe some rain lines to the individual rain drops and some additional drawn in rain drops. As life is, I wasn’t able to finish the block before this post so you will have to come back later to see the finished block. I am hoping it turns out as I see it in my mind.
