Our block theme for Quilt Block Mania in April was Rain. I kept things simple because there is absolutely nothing wrong with simplicity. I think this block would be super cute as a row in a row by row spring quilt.
This PDF should print out at 6.5″ x 7.5″. You will need to paper piece two blocks. If you need instructions about how to do this, check out this links:
Foundation Paper Piecing Tutorial
Once you have the drops made, you will add fabric on the top and bottom of the block to achieve a placement that you like. I added 1″ on top and 4″ on bottom to one raindrop and 4″ on top and 1″ on bottom to the other block. These pieces will need to be 6.5″ wide.
At this point you should have two raindrops that are 6.5″ wide by 12.5″ tall. Sew the two drops together and *POOF* you have a cute block.

Hi Kaye: Did you send out an April newsletter with the pattern instructions for your rain block for April QBM?
I didn’t. 😳 Life got crazy. I’ll send it out this week with May’s.
