    Here's a few of my favorite blocks I made for the BOM swap here on the board.

    The first one is about where I grew up: Carmel, California. The picture on top right is the famous Lone Cyprus on the Seventeen-Mile-Drive where Pebble Beach is. The one that is middle left is about the Sand Castle contests they had on Carmel Beach. The picture on the bottom left is California's First Theater in Monterey, California. Monterey was the first capital of California. While I lived there, they still performed old-style melodramas, along with hissing and booing from the audience.

    I love this pig block so much that I am making one for me. Ditto on the Carmel block.

    I love turquoise and it was fun to make this block. I just love the way it turned out.

    The next one is a beauty. I bought the stripey fabric on a whim because it was so colorful. It was in with the halloween fabric. It was perfect when someone request orange in their block.

    The last one was for someone who was collecting turtle blocks. I found this turtle in an old 60's coloring book that I have from when I was a child. My husband drew the face. He's the artist in the family.

    I have this rope in my hands. I can't figure out whether I found a rope or lost my horse.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Finished size is 12" x 12".

    Your block is just beautiful, and all the other blocks are great as well.
    God Bless you all.

    Okay, I'll play. Just finished a VERY PURPLE-Y Warm Wishes (lap sized) top, this evening. It was already on the cutting table, so decided to just throw the random blocks, on top of it. They aren't nearly as fancy as some of the others, I've seen . . . but at least y'all can see I actually do sew and not spend ALL of my time, reading the QB!

    Neesie, I like all your blocks, but that Warm Wishes is the prettiest I've seen in that pattern!

    This thread is loads of fun!

    I have a number of blocks that I am especially fond of. The first is a Dresden variation that I designed (PPing). the outer edges are prairie points. I intend to make a whole quilt, but right now it is a UFO. The second is an applique block which I made as part of my granddaughter's wedding quilt. (she is 11, so there was no rush to complete this one.) The friendship star is a one block donation quilt made with scrappy squares. The last is one I call Pharoh's Phan. I saw this block in an antique quilt photo a friend took and played with the pattern until I liked it, but not enough to make a large quilt, so it became a wall hanging.

    I dont quite ubderstand the phraze, "He's the artist in the family", it looks to me as though you are a beautiful quilt artist. Accept your creativity and bask in it. My favorite block is the turtle.

    No picture, but your salutation is priceless. It seems that tonight I have enjoyed a lot of salutations even more than the blocks. Well, not really better, but close.
