A quilt every few days or so #15

More quilt blocks - all made for the Washington theme swap . . .



One of my favorite blocks - a version of Sunbonnet Sue (which I love) - and a good version for our rainy climate. Some day I plan to make a bed quilt of this block - for our winter quilt, since we get so much rain each winter. Don't you think that is perfect for Washington?


A paper pieced lighthouse block . . .


I designed this hummingbird drinking from a fuchsia flower . . .


And what could be more Washington than daffodils? (paper pieced)

Or whales diving - these are two different blocks . . .

And let's not forget all the camping in Washington . . . this block is paper pieced also

(Happy Birthday to me - Happy Birthday to me)

Happy Birthday Jo...I hope you get to eat some cake today! I immediately thought of the Morton Salt girl when I saw the first one. How adorable. And the pebble fabric is so perfect for the camping one! You have so many great ideas. ~Lili

Happy Birthday Jo. I wish I had received some of your blocks when I did the Wasiq swap. They're wonderful.

Happy Birthday, Jo! Love these blocks, especially the hummingbird one. I have been reading on so many quilting blogs lately, I need to shut this 'puter off and get busy on my own blocks! LOL. Have a blessed b-Day!
