Pat’s theme this year, 'Out of This World!' is full of fun space tips and in April we have some space things that are silly but create memories!
The block pattern download is further down the page after Pat tells you about the inspiration for this month's block down below.
UPDATED PATTERN: Pat sent an updated version of Block Four, so the link below now uses that latest version.

Pat Sloan About This Month's Block - Space Crazy Fun!
I think there are periods of time were the whole whole world was super space-crazy. I think it comes and goes, but I secretly think we all want a little space fun in our lives.
So I find that Space pops up everywhere... how about...
As a Party Theme? There are SO many cool options. From the decorations, to the type of food. Hello Moon Rock cookies, to the sparkly ceilings. This is a fantastic way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or a baby shower! Now we need to hope for a space-themed baby room.
Check them out at Pinterest, now I want to light up my ceiling!
Did you know you can find 'space theme' sneakers? Or do a little DIY on a pair of your own. This would be a fun way to spiff up a pair of kicks. Years ago I painted many a pair of white sneaker.
This link has a TON of DIY space ideas.
Lunch boxes have always been a way to show what we love. I was all over the place with mine. From Strawberry Shortcake to space themes!
This is my Tom Corbett Space Cadet lunch box. I still love the graphics on it.
