BIRTHDAY BLOCKS

I belong to a friendship group that call themselves Talking Threads (AKA the TTs).  We meet once a month at different members homes. This year we are making birthday blocks (you chose your own theme) for each member and give them out on the birthday girl's month. Yesterday was our meeting and we have four July birthdays.  One TT selected Spools, any kind, any style, any size. Another selected the double pinwheel block in red, white, and blue.  And, another selected any 12" pieced star in red, white, and blue. I only wish I had pulled out my phone to take pictures.  I selected the theme "What's in my Garden" any size, any style.  Here is what I received:

Aren't they wonderful?  Each one is so unique; I love them all. Thank you ladies for a wonderful selection.  Oh, and today is my birthday.  Now to figure out a setting.  Let the fun begin!

Hope you are having a good week and

Quilt happy,
Marilyn
