Even though it’s April Fool’s Day today you won’t find me playing any practical jokes here! It’s a Just Takes 2 Benjamin Biggs quilt day and we’ve got stitching to do. I think you’ll find today’s block a breath of fresh air after the intense work on tiny stems and little round cherries in last month’s block.
I know it looks like I have the block is upside down but that’s the way it’s set in the quilt. I’m not sure if I’ll orient it that way in my quilt or turn it around. Seems kind of odd to me this way.

The quilting, the quilting. There’s lots of quilting in this block but it’s a bit difficult to see. There’s a large picture in the pattern file and you can enlarge this one to look it over. I’ve found feather wreaths, feather sprays or a sprig of feathers depending on what you want to call it and a flower or leaf design. You could use lots of designs to dress up this Carolina Lily block.
If you’e just joining us and missing the first three blocks you can purchase them
