    H Barb - the block in post 939 was made by Sherri R. She was really great - she encouraged and coached me through the FMQ and made 3 blocks so that the quilt would have 20 blocks. I marked that one but I think the signature got lost in the dark materials. My block came from one of the 100 Quilt Blocks magazines. I will see if I can find it and send to you.

    I got lucky - Emily Herrick was nice enough to share her Perfect Petals quilt block online. Here is the link:

    http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...SuVI8F-OU0cUaQ

    Or google Perfect Petals quilt block by Emily Herrick. It makes up very easily since the units are flip and sew. Its a great pattern!

    the quilting: The center of the star has the quilting outlining the sun(flower). Then the four points have a leafy type quilting. The blue fabric has an all over puzzle look. Just beautiful!

    Thanks again Becky!
    Ok. The provenance on this one: When I first started quilting, about 7 years ago, I joined a birthday block swap. I asked for yellow stars on a blue background. The person who gave me this fabric had not gotten my block made, but sent me the FQ's. So I made the block to match the pattern of the square she sent me. I still haven't put that quilt together, one of these days...

    This square is made up of 32 triangles of 32 different fabrics! each triangle is then made into a square. I like the scrappy feel to this quilt square.

    This square was made by Sheri R...Sheri

    so cute...Heart made up of red scraps made into a heart and appliquéd on a white piece of white on white fabric. I really need to learn how to appliqué !

    Quilting:no quilting inside the heart but there are hearts dancing around the outside on the white fabric!

    thank you Sheri

    This the second of the three squares that Sheri made me!

    This square was made by Sewmany...Gloria

    This is a beautiful star made up of 8 points. The center has 2 browns followed by reds and blues on the points. This one looks really hard to me. I am not very good with all the points. On the outside of the star is a beige fabric with very faint brown zig zag lines.

    The quilting: The star has hearts running through the center of the star and a heart border going around the points. It looks like the beige area has an all over puzzle look.

    Thank you Gloria

    this is the 3rd square that Sheri made for me!!!!

    This square has 8 large triangles making up a pinwheel look. Love the color choices of yellow and light blue.

    The quilting: Looks like a petal in each triangle and and all over puzzle look in the white fabric.

    Thank you Sheri

    Thanks for the pictures of all the blocks. There are a couple I've not seen before and think I'll have to put on my "try it" list.

    This square was made by Jannie...Janet

    This square is made with two colors white and blue.. the white makes up a star almost looks like a moving star with blue triangles all around the points.

    The quilting on the white is loops going in a circle. The blue has 3 triangles in each piece.

    thanks again Janet

    This square...last but not least is made by fraew....Felicia

    this cute square has a teapot on it...don't know if Felicia knows but I am a tea totaler! Love my tea hot or cold!

    The teapot is made of red flower fabric that I am sure was fussy cut out to get that pretty flower in the center. The handle is black. The border is made up of red and black squares in different sizes.

    the quilting: Heart all around the border and an all over pattern in the white fabric. The teapot was appliquéd on by machine.

    thank you Felicia

    Hi ladies! Oh, Barb! I'm glad you showed close up! Every block is so pretty. I know JNCT was nervous but she sure is talented. I'm so glad she had this wonderful idea.

    My personal update... Family has all slowly left grandmas. My hubby and girls fly back to Texas tomorrow. I told grandma I'd stay with her for as long as she'd like. She said, "Lets try three weeks and see how things go." So, I'm in Idaho at least three more weeks. when hubby gets home I'll have him send me my last two July birthday candy sets and my August one. And my own swap packages!! LoL
