    I love everyone's blocks!

    I was surprised this block went together so easily even with the partial seam. I usually shy away from partial seams but maybe I will be braver now. Lol! I did need to trim around the whole block but that's ok. I like how it looks.

    I cannot upload a picture !!! I have always taken a picture with my IPhone. Emailed it to myself. Right clicked on the photo and upload to my computer. Then I posted. For some reason when I right click on the photo nothing comes up so I can upload. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Don't know carrot, but yesterday when I posted pics it was very very slow before it finally came on and I knew it was posted. Not this thread but others.

    Carrot: Isn't that frustrating? Sometimes I can get it to work on my iPhone and not my iPad. Technology! Lol!

    Here is my Jack in the Box block.

    Oksewnsew and Annt59: Thanks for the compliments.

    I made the extra July block so I could have enough to finish my baby quilt top. I hopefully will finish the top tomorrow.

    Here are my most recent blocks in a baby quilt top that is 39" by 45". The backing will be the panda fabric. It will be sandwiched and finished by volunteers at a charity.

    I like your idea of using the backing in the front too, very nice. It leads me to a question I am going to throw out there. If you do the backing with flannelette, or something of that nature, could you also do what you just did with the top? Mix two different types of materials together? I have done the flannel in the back for baby blankets and they loved it, but to use it in the front to??

    Very nice Retiredteacher, like the combo of the blocks. YES Ann, you can mix the fabrics. I have a throw I did years ago and it's still in use today...Be sure to wash/dry your flannel first, it has a tendency to shrink. It sure makes them cuddly.

    No, haven't picked another block yet. Let me see what I can find. Will try to post later, ok?

    Thanks for all the kind words! Yes, I think I will sash it, Jaba. And I haven't figured out positions for the blocks, just laid them out on the floor today for the picture.
