Birthday Blocks from Kathi and Kate

I'll confess... I peeked. I just couldn't resist. These blocks from Kathi and Kate are even better in person -- they're going to make a fabulous quilt!

Backing up, Kate is hosting a birthday block swap on the about.com quilting forum. Each of the 12 ladies in my group got to select parameters for blocks she'd like to receive during her birthday month. It didn't work for everyone, but my actual birthday and my swap birthday are the same month -- lucky me!

I asked for 9" finished star blocks in red and white. I'm going to set them on point -- the corner triangles will be pieced and form a frame around each block. I can't wait to see what else arrives in my mailbox this month!

Kathi and Kate have really raised the bar for the rest of us in the swap. I'm in the middle of making yourblock and feeling a little intimidated by these . . .
