My Final Blocks!

Hello!  :)

I actually finished this final row of blocks in May. I just didn't post them here so I figured I'd better do that now.  ;)

Here are my blocks for the final row . . .


Here's a close up of the butterfly block . . .


Isn't it pretty?! I love this pink fabric! And check out the birdie . . . 


Of course it's blue! Did you see his wing?  :)

How about some sunshine to brighten your day?


I love sunshine, although I don't like the heat.  :(

The next block is an old wooden chair . . . 


Of course it had to be red! Doesn't it just look adorable with all those lovely flowers?

Then there's the heart. I love hearts! And it's pink! It represents family and love of course!


And last, but not least, presents to share . . . 


Who doesn't love presents?!!! I do much prefer to give then to receive . . . and I'm not just saying it! I really mean it! I get so much joy watching someone open a gift I picked out or made especially for them.  :)

I still haven't cut the blocks and strips yet. I know! I've gathered the fabric and it's been sitting in a pile waiting to be cut for the last few months.  :)  Now I just have to get moving and get it all cut and pieced together. I will get it done before the deadline! I know I will! I just have to get moving on it.  :)

Until next time . . .

Your blocks are lovely, especially the chair block. But then I am partial to chairs.
