    Here is my July BOM. Normally, I would have done strictly red, white, and blue. But, I was working with some food fabrics, and couldn't resist doing this in the blueberries and watermelon.

    Happy 4th of July to all! Enjoy and be safe!

    Jenniky, I always look forward to seeing what kind of spin you put into your blocks, I will be looking out for it
    Thomp116, love your watermellon and blueberry choice of fabrics! A patriotic picnic!

    July Block

    Here is my July block. As you know I make two blocks, usually this BOM and one similar but different, for my grandaughters. But I decided to make two of this block. The way I'll make them different, is that I'm going to use this as the signature block. So I'll embroidry their names, and the date and maybe a couple little embroidered fireworks in the white area. Now I'll just wait until I set up my embroidery part of my machine. Which might be a while yet. Next month I'll be on vacation the first two weeks of Aug, so will have to do those blocks later in the month, but I don't want to miss a month.

    Now this block makes me want to stand up and salute. Great job on this block very summery and festive.
    Have an awesome day!

    Ladies, your blocks are gorgeous! I love the food one
    Here's mine. I don't live in the US so mine is not RBW. I thought of flowers and bright fabric so that's what I did!

    I really like your flowers and bright pink, Anael. I was thinking, if you don't live in the US, you could also do a beach scene. The stars could be the beach and the stripes could be blue and white for the waves. Or a snow covered mountain and the stripes are the hills below. No, haven't started mine yet.hehe
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    Happy Independance Day. In celebration of having the day off of work, I made my July block.

    So, can I just jump in and make the block of the month? Do you swap them? Or every month each person makes one of the pattern put up for their own stash? Surely I can handle that!! Someone invite me or something! :-)

    Welcom Kensington. Here is your invite. It is not swap. Each month a different person selects a pattern and we make it, putting our own twists on it. Some use a different pattern all together. It is a calendar block of the month. Each month has two threads - one for the instructions and one for the pictures. I'm going to try to insert a link to the intro thread.

    Welcome!

    Thanks Jeanine! I wasn't sure if it was closed or open. I like this block. I noticed that some of the blocks pictured were different from the original pattern posted. So, your post explains it. "Putting our own twist on it". I'm not sewing today, but I can do this. Thanks again.

    Well now the darn thing loaded. I had to show the single block because one of the things I noticed about all the squares is that the ones that used a variety of scraps the stripes look wavy where the other ones look straight. Does any one else see that???? I think it looks neat. I love the variety of the ones like the fruit.

    urgodschild2: How right you are. And, no, I didn't notice it by myself. I'm off to see if I can make a waving one.
