Kay and Sue, your blocks arrived today and I love them! So bright and cheery. That was so great to hear that your hubbies liked the blocks. I wonder what mine will say...

Gee, seems like I just had a birthday, but happy to have another one.
(Translation: I was in the Ribbons & Bows group as well and celebrated that as an "unbirthday" on Feb. 14th so I did just have sort-of-a-birthday. LOL)

Here are the blocks from Kay and Sue. The block is the 9" finshed size Pineapple Blossom block from Quiltville.com. I know I am going to love this quilt! (Sorry not to have pressed the blocks after they arrived and before taking pictures. I will try to do better next time.)

Kay's on the left and Sue's on the right:

Wonderful job on the color choices!

Teresa,
Your blocks arrived today. Thank you so much. I will post a picture of those and Michelle's block soon. I am having lots of trouble getting GardenWeb to open up today so I think it is best to try pictures another day.
Wow, this quilt is going to be pretty!

Sorry no picture of the recently received blocks yet. My software/service provider is difficult to work with for posting pictures, but I will get them on here because I sure want everyone to see these great blocks. I had been sick for 2 weeks and basically doing nothing and now have company coming in and a presentation to do tomorrow about a quilting class I will teach in the fall so it went from quiet to busy ... and you know how it gets when it is too much to do all at once! Things should settle down again by Monday - when I go to get the work done for a crown on my tooth. Not looking forward to it...

Hi Jeanne~your block went to the post office today.
Hope you are feeling better. I have been quasi-sick for over 4 weeks now....can't seem to get rid of the cough and get myself back to normal.

Jeanne - my block for you is going in the mail tomorrow. I wasn't sure if this would be easy to put together or not, but it was and I had fun with it!

I'm finally back to post pictures. It was a busy weekend. I went to the Spring Meeting of Quilters of South Carolina yesterday which was lots of fun and my younger daughter, Andrea, and her husband were here for the weekend, too. Andrea is also in this group and I received my block from her.

Here are the four newer ones (all great):

Top left is from Andrea, top right is from Michelle, and the bottom two are from Teresa.

And here are all 6 that I have received so far so you can see them all together.

Kate, I'm glad you did not have problems making my block. It seemed pretty easy to me, but I am someone who likes to make blocks using what I call "the flippy corners." LOL

Thanks, Andrea, Teresa, and Michelle for the 4 that arrived recently. I will post again as more arrive. It sure is fun to get the mail these days!

No worries, Jeanne! It was very easy and very quick; so quick I ended up making two for you. It gave me a totally different perspective on pineapple blocks than I had before. For some reason, I always assumed they would be difficult. Silly me!

Marsha,
I received your blocks today... and I loved the front of the notecard with the cute quilters pictured together. Yes, one of them looks just like me! LOL Thank you. These blocks are so bright and cheery.
I had a crown put on my tooth earlier today so no picture taking, but I will be sure to include your pretty blocks the next time I have my camera out.
Anyone who may be a little late with my block, please don't stress. I had a "pretend birthday" in February in addition to this one so I think I am fine!

Kate, I think your block should make it here before or on my birthday. Don't worry.
So far I have blocks from:
Sue
Andrea
Marsha
Michelle
Pat
Teresa
Kay
Linda
Darlene
Virginia
... and Kate's is on the way and a few messages back Cindy was working on my block so I know all will make it to me.
Last night I took a picture of the ones I have along with the ones I had made previously. So bright and cheery! I will try to get the picture posted soon. I have not entered it into the computer yet.

Jeanne ~ Happy Birthday! Pics of your triplet Grandbabies warm my heart. One little guy coming home in such a short time is remarkable. What a great year you should have!

Thanks for all the happy birthday wishes. I had a really nice day and each one of you helped to make it special. I don't know when I will get this year's birthday blocks put together, but I will try to post another photo of the blocks soon.

I have many more blocks compared to the last time I added a picture so here is a picture from today. The last block I am awaiting is from Cindy. I know I won't get a chance to post a picture again before I leave, but my husband will be here to get the mail so no problem there.

There are more than 12 blocks already because a few quilters sent 2 and I made a few myself. For me, this is a really fun block to make. It reminds me of a log cabin block, but then it has the special - what I call "flippy corners" - to make it into the pineapple design.

Thanks again, everyone!
