Just starting a thread for everyone to post when they send their blocks to Deanna and for Deanna to reply when she receives them.
Just letting you know that I will be posting my block to you tomorrow (27th Jan). Should arrive between 8th-10th Feb
I posted your block today ... should get there with plenty of time to spare, but you never can tell :)
Thank you for letting me know. I will keep watch for them and let you know when they arrive. It is going to be sooooooo hard to wait until the 26th to open.
Just bumping this thread back to page 1
Cathleen, your block arrived today! Perfect surprise on a snowbound, frigid day. I couldn't resist opening and daughter was encouraging me to (so I have an excuse). lol It's beautiful! I love the block and the colors are perfect. Thank you!
Deanna, I'm mailing your block to you today so should get it before your birthday..... Kitty
Even though I think it is too early to mail you block I did today. Sometimes it is difficult for me to get to the PO and as I was mailing another BDB I sent yours as well.
This time of year it is better to be early. Jayne
Kitty, your blocks arrived Saturday. Thank you so much for the wonderful blocks!
Jayne, your block arrived yesterday. Another beautiful block and I appreciate the extra blue fabric as well!
I have been in a quilting cloud finishing the bargello started a few weeks ago (done as of last night) and am looking forward to working with these great b-day blocks next. I love the diversity of pattern choices and fabrics. Thank you all!
Two more squishies today! I am really liking this birthday month despite -19* temps on the way to work this morning.
Kristine, your pretty block arrived today. Thank you for the extra fabric as well! Your predicted arrival date was right on target. :)
Eileen, your lovely block arrived today as well. Thank you too for the extra tuck-in!
So far the tally for received blocks is:
This is going to be a wonderful sampler quilt for sure! I'd best start planning the layout.
Glad you like the block, Dee. I was going to write that I sent the block but this message is arriving after the block! These birthday blocks are a lot of fun....Eileen
Hi, I'm going to try and mail your block on Friday. Another snow day tomorrow and I don't go to town unless I have to. Hopefully Friday things will be better. I know we don't have it very bad here in Oklahoma but we aren't use to this either. When we have snow it is usaully gone the next day. all the snow hadn't melted from last week and we got more. But I will mail your block as soon as I can. tara
Tara, no problem. I certainly understand about the unusual weather you've been experiencing too. It takes even those of us who are used to getting some snow a while to get back in the swing of winter driving. The cold has been horrible here the last few weeks and I can imagine how unbearable it must be for those not used to such extremes this winter! Spring is on the way!!!
Deanna I mailed your block yeaterday the 11th Have a great birthday. Paula
Deanna, I am putting your block in the mail tomorrow. I am pretty sure it will get there in time if we do not have another huge snow in the East.
Thanks for letting me know, Jackie. Sure hope there aren't any more huge snows as they will likely come through here first!
Tara and Paula, your beautiful blocks arrived yesterday. Thank you both for your addition to this sampler! This is so much fun and I am admiring everyone's wonderful work.
Here is the count as of this morning:
Have a great day all!
off to work.......
Melissa, your block arrived yesterday. Another great addition to what is going to be a wonderful sampler quilt. Thank you!
All are on the design wall and I will wait until I've got them all for picture. :)
Your block is done and will go out in the mail tomorrow.
Your block is going out tomorrow (Thursday) sorry it will be late :(
Have a wonderful birthday!
I'm sorry your block will be late. It's been finished for a week, but I didn't get to the PO because of too many little ones. Now we're having a wonderful (?) snow storm. I sure hope this is our last before spring arrives!! I will get it to the PO later today if we can get out, if not it will definitely go tomorrow --- even if I have to drive it to you myself!
[How's YOUR weather?? Maybe I WANT to drive your way! LOL]
Happy Birthday tomorrow! Hope you have a great day...Eileen
Have a wonderful birthday
Happy Birthday, Deanna! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I wasn't in your group but I certainly look forward to seeing your blocks.
Thank you all! I am having a great day! This old lady is about birthday'd out now. lol
Jackie, your block arrived the other day. Thank you so much for it and the extra HSTs! Couldn't have come on a better day as I had to endure some unexpected medical tests. To come home and find your envie was a wonderful surprise! The block is beautiful!!! I've put together the HSTs and it helped take my mind off waiting for test results.
The cake Kristene made looks delicious! ;) Thank you! I've got extra pink champagne cake that DD made left also. By all means, grab a piece of cake before I eat both of them by myself!!!
I am glad your block made it. Hope your tests came out ok and you are having a great birthday!
Your pink champagne cake certainly looks scrumptious! Wish I were there in person!
Vasu and Marie, your blocks arrived yesterday and Cindy's came today. They are beautiful!
I am so excited to put together this quilt! It will go in the master bedroom when finished. Now I need to get busy and plan the layout. I think all blocks have been received and accounted for. Thank you all!!!!!
Aren't they beautiful?
Thank you for making this birthday a great one! 54 isn't so bad after all. ;)
Deanna - such nice blocks! It's always fun to see all the blocks together & you really do have great ones! Your quilt is going to be beautiful!
