More birthday blocks -- lucky me!

I must say, I'm so pleased with myself for picking the perfect theme for my birthday blocks ;) As I mentioned to someone else today, I've been carrying around the idea for a while, and this swap was the perfect opportunity to bring it to reality.

Today's mail brought TWO more great blocks, from Sophie (l) and Christine.

Sophie was definitely right -- more stripes were needed, especially when they're used in just the right way, like she did in her block. And Christine picked one of my all-time favorite fabrics for the center of her block (you can't really see it in the photo, so you'll have to trust me on that). Plus, I needed another block that's intensely red to balance Diane's from the other day.

Lucky, lucky me!
