This is the post for you to write when you send your Birthday Block to sandlapper-rose (Jeanne), and for Jeanne to write when she receives them.
I've finished your block and will be posting it tomorrow. Should reach you around 3rd March
Jeanne, your blocks went out in today's mail.
I received my first birthday blocks today - from Kay. They are wonderful and it was so exciting to have my first blocks arrive! (I don't have the patience many of you have - when they arrive, the envelope gets opened... it sort of spreads out the enjoyment.)
Your block is going in the mail tomorrow.
Yesterday I received blocks from Kristene. They are great and I know this quilt will be lots of fun and a great reminder of my birthday this year!
I took pictures so will try to post them sometime soon.
Jeanne, I mailed your square today - you should have it by the end of the week.
I mailed my blocks today. Happy Birthday!!
I posted pictures of my blocks received so far in the Gallery section. Wow, that section doesn't get used much! When I have all the blocks, I will post a picture here on this thread.
Thanks so much, everyone!
i put your block in the mail on tue
Three more people to thank: I've received blocks from Sue, Jackie, and Pat. Thanks so much. They are all great and it's fun seeing the coffee related fabrics and colors that were used. A few people enclosed a card or some fabric (totally not required, but appreciated.)
Thanks to everyone. I'll post more pictures when I get a chance. What a special group of ladies and what a fun birthday for this year!
How do you find the photos in the gallery. I put in your screen name, but didn't find them.
When you are on the main page (Quilting), below that you will see a heading that reads "Messages".
Below that you will see "On-Topic Discussions" and then you will see "Switch to" and click on the word "Gallery". Mine should be the first two posts on the list.
If it doesn't work for our birthday block members, let me know. I avoided putting the pictures here because I was going to post each one that I receive and I know some have issues with their computer speed and pictures, but if people can't see them on Gallery, I'll put them here.
Thanks for asking the quection, Linda.
Had been trying to access it from the galleries at the top. That worked. Thanks for the lesson! I always seem to miss something.
Sending your blocks out today. I had such fun with them I made two. They're a great block pattern. Learning more with every day I spend here on the forum.
Hi Jeanne, Your blocks went in the mail today.
Well, I learned something too - I had never noticed the word Galleries at the top of the page. LOL
Glad you found the pictures. I hope to post more soon - haven't gotten my camera out yet.
Hi Jeanne, putting your block in the mail today. It was easier to make than I thought. Happy Birthday.
More blocks arrived - such wonderful colors, coffee themed fabrics that I love, and beautifully made from everyone - so I am really looking forward to making this quilt. The new ones that arrived are from Debbie and Valarie. Thanks so much, ladies!
It appears I forgot to post that I sent your blocks! They went in the mail on Saturday, so maybe they'll come today.
I received your package, Linda. So beautiful! I will try to take a picture of all the blocks I have received so far and post it soon.
Thanks again, eveyone!
I hope to get your block in the mail tomorrow. The fabric I ordered was on back order and just got here. Please don't feel forgotten.
No problem, Beverly.
I took a picture of the blocks I have so far. Aren't they pretty? I made 2 of them myself when I was trying out the pattern and then some ladies sent more than 1 so this quilt is really moving along.
I received a beautiful block from Darlene. Darlene, thank you so much. These blocks are going to look great together!
That sure looks wonderful! Good choice!
I received my quilt block from Beverly yesterday. Thanks so much for a wonderful block.
Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone!
I knew blocks had been arriving, but I didn't realize until today that all of my blocks are here! Wow, it's not even my birthday yet. I took pictures again now that all of the blocks are here. In this view they are set in rows.
In this view they are set on point. I'm so happy with every block. Thank you so much!
It looks great! Hope you'll be able to sleep under all that caffeine ;-)
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday dear Jeanne,
Happy Birthday to you.
On behalf of all the quilters in "The Quilters' Dozen" I hope you have a wonderful birthday
And good wishes from me.
The blocks look fabulous!
Happy Birthday Jeanne!
Great theme for your blocks. I like the on point setting alot.
The group is making wonderful, thoughtful series of blocks for everyone.
Have a wonderful year.
Thanks for the birthday wishes and the cake. I think I like the on point version best, too, so that may be "the one." I had a good laugh about the comment on how would I sleep under all that caffeine! LOL
Have a great day and a wonderful Easter weekend. Everyone in the Birthday Block Exchange, and especially Kay and Kristene by organizing this, helped to make my birthday very special.
