Hi! Just starting a thread for everyone in the Piece of Cake Group to post their messages to Sue about sending their blocks and for Sue to respond. Remember, all blocks should be received by Sue's birthday. Communication by email to Sue and Jeanne( or myself) is necessary if some reason prevents this happening.

Hi everyone - just thought I would let you know that I will be gone the entire month of January so you don't need to go nuts trying to get my block sent by the 3rd. We are going to spend the month in Arizona where it's warm and head back to Colorado the first part of February.

Hi, Sue -
I just completed your block and will be mailing it tomorrow. It should get to you before you leave for Arizona. I have looked at that block so many times and almost picked it for the block I would select so it was fun to finally make it for someone!

Aren't you smart getting away from the cold! I lived in New York for about half of my years so I miss the snow, but we do get some every now and then and when we do I can sit and watch the snowflakes for hours. Guess it's good it doesn't happen too often - another reason for me to get nothing done. LOL

Oh Sue!
You just made my day. We are expecting our first grandchild on Jan. 6ish and I haven't started your block yet. I was planning to do it this week but I'm behind on Christmas quilts...eek! So enjoy your trip and your block will be waiting for you when you get back.
Merry Christmas!

I'll wish you a happy birthday early since you'll be gone. You have the same birthday as a certain public defender down in Boulder that you've met.

Have a good holiday and a wonderful vacation in warmer climates.

Jeanne - I wanted to let you know that your package arrived today! Anxiously awaiting for January.

RE: Piece of Cake - Jan 3rd - Sue (polardream)

Thanks for letting me know, Sue. I think the post office is giving faster service than usual this year at holiday time. Hooray for them and for us!
Darlene, be sure to post of the thread for the General Discussion - Birthday Block Exchange when your grandchild arrives. How exciting! We are supposed to be grandparents for the first time in 2011 - but later in the year.
Well, time to get busy with the rest of the things that need to be done before Christmas. Can I possibly do that much in a week? LOL

RE: Piece of Cake - Jan 3rd - Sue (polardream)

Sue, I made your pretty block today so I'll be putting it in the mail to you on Monday. I'm sure the postal service is moving slow these days, but you should have it before the end of the month!

How special is that!

Thank you for all the birthday wishes. I am having a ball in AZ with my mom. A neighbor gave her 20 garbage bags of fabric, thread & quilting notions! We have been sorting, ironing, & cutting squares for quilts. It has been WONDERFUL. She usually makes at least 6 quilts a month for Project Linus so I have been cutting away. I'm sneaking some of it into my stack to bring home ... :)

I'm looking forward to all my squishes when we go back to Colorado!

Sue, my squishy should be waiting for you when you get home. I mailed it last Wednesday.

Mine will be waiting for you as well - I forgot to post when I mailed it on the 28th.
My DIL & I were just discussing AZ today :) & how much more we would enjoy there than here w/the snow falling & everyone either sick or recovering! Warm DRY air sounds heavenly!! Enjoy!! (I know you are:)

Sue,
It's down to the teens here in North Carolina tonight, so I hope you are enjoying shirt sleeve weather in AZ! I mailed your block on Friday, so it should be waiting on you when you get home.

Hi Sue,
Finally got your block made and plan to mail it tomorrow. I like the colors you picked and the block went together fast. I made one for me using reds.
Hope you had a great birthday and enjoyed your trip.

We got back late Monday night from Arizona - in a snow storm (what were we thinking!??).

I finally got through sorting mail & had the opportunity to open my birthday blocks and they are beautiful! Thank you everyone. I have received all except yours, Michelle. I'm sure it will be here tomorrow or Saturday - depending on the mail - I will let you know.

I am so excited about this block - it is like a breath of spring around the corner (and with the cold temps here I need that!)

Thank you again to everyone. I will post pictures soon.

That's going to be gorgeous! Have you thought about your borders?

RE: Piece of Cake - Jan 3rd - Sue (polardream)

That looks great! Thanks for posting the picture. I did not notice that when they go together, it makes a star design from the corners of the four blocks. I love when those "hidden designs" show up!

I love those blocks, Sue. I'm sure you'll make something wonderful with them. Looking forward to seeing the finished product, too.

I love the way they go together. That will be a pretty quilt.

RE: Piece of Cake - Jan 3rd - Sue (polardream)

Sue, I liked this block alot when I made it - your color choice and ease of sewing was a needed break on a bleak icy snow storming day! It is going to make a very pretty & refreshing quilt.
