Saturday was Marion's quilting birthday.
|Cake! Chocolate of course!|
I asked the girls to bring in some of the quilts they've made from birthday blocks in past years. It is fun to see how different they appear depending on the fabrics, settings, and size that they've chosen.
The first year we did a birthday block exchange was 1996. We did a star signature block. These blocks are extra special because they are signed, and one of our original members has passed away.
|This is Kim P.'s birthday quilt done in patriotic colors.|
|This is Lori's birthday quilt in shades of blue.|
|I used the original nine blocks I received and finally made a wall hanging in 2012.|
|Lori was brave and made hers larger.|
|This is Pat's quilt with our birthday blocks from 2009.|
|This is Kim P.'s birthday block quilt using the Bento Box pattern |
in batik fabrics. We made this block in 2006. I finished mine last year
and you can see it under the tab, 2013 Finished Quilts.
|We made this quilt for Karen's 50th birthday and it was also our |
birthday block last year because we liked it so much.
|One year we did a sampler quilt. This is Nancy D.'s in blue and yellow.|
|This was our birthday block in 2010 or 2011. Pat super-sized hers and made it out of Kaffe Fasset fabrics.|
|Karen's quilt is made of batiks.|
|Don't they look very different from each other?|
Linking up on Tuesday to FreeMotion by the River. Thanks for visiting!
Pugs and kisses,
