Birthday Blocks from 2006

I know, that is a long time to wait. I had them in a pizza box and forgot about them. I came across them last week and decided to put them together using the BQ2 pattern. I really like using this pattern for the setting because it increases the size of the blocks to 18 inches and makes 12 blocks into a nice size quilt.
I had the names pinned to each blocks so I know who made them. Some of the people are still here on the forum. See if you can find your blocks.

That's nice, Linda! BQ makes a great layout for a sampler.

Me too! Don't know what BQ2 is either?? However, I love your quilt Linda - and your web blog as well. I have enjoyed a few visits to your wonderful site. Thank you for all your work.

Thanks everyone.
BQ2 is the name of the quilt pattern. I assumed it meant Big Quilt.The pattern company has a pattern called BQ that is similar to the BQ2.
The back of the pattern says, "Move the center squares off center and cross the frames for more big quilt fun."

Nice use of blocks that are different as most samplers are.
It makes for a very interesting way of pulling them togeather. Will have to remember this one. Nice job. TFS

Very nice!

Your links work just fine. Thanks for posting them! This is a very interesting pattern and a great way to show off sampler blocks or a pretty fabric.

Thank you for sharing this. As a newbie, I've collected an assortment of diverse blocks and didn't know what to do with them. With the separation between the block, it allows each block to be appreciated for its unique pattern. I really like what you did.

Very lovely layout, Linda. I am always attracted to quilts having asymmetry and variation in patterns.

I really like your quilt, Linda! What a unique layout for a sampler. Another for "the list". Such enablers we all are!
