This is my Block of the Month for May for the Jewels in the Crown quilt I am making. This one was lots easier than April's block. There are lots of pieces and lots of sewing involved. I am making the entire quilt out of batiks. I am sure that this is a quilt I will only make one of. The designer is posting a block each month for the first six months of the year and then the next six months she will post a block and sashings and borders (oh yes, there is a pieced border). I am certain that I will love it!
