Birthday Blocks from 2006

Posted Monday, February 20th, 2012 in Birthday Block Quilt, Quilt Blocks | Tags: ,

When I went to the quilt show in Columbus, Ohio last year (2011) I found a pattern called BQ2.http://www.mapleislandquilts.com/images/Product/large/MIQ965.jpg I bought it because it is perfect for large print fabrics. It is also perfect for setting 12 inch blocks together and has directions for 9 and 6 inch blocks.

These are blocks I received in a birthday block exchange on the Quilting Forum in 2006. I will list the forum names of the people who made the blocks in each row, left to right.

Row 1:  Bon, Vanislegirl, Anne

Row 2: grammyp, Quiltdiva, bkfdwife

Row 3:  ColleenNY, hagar, Teresa nc7

Row 4:  Amy, benken, Jennifer in VA

There really are not any wrinkles in the blocks. I did not have the quilt top lying flat on the carpet when I took the pictures.

Wonderful blocks. Love the BQ2 setting. I have that pattern too and want to use it for a BOM. Just need to get my “you know what in gear” and do it. Those sunshine blocks are really cute, but I dare not start another project.

This setting is fantastic! It’s given me ideas for setting some blocks that I’ve done over the years and are just waiting to have something done with them!!! I know – another project coming up!!! LOL
