I joined a quilting birthday club recently. There are 18 of us gals making various quilt blocks. For each gals b-day, we will make the square of their choice in their colors and size specifications.
I plan on making one for each of the ladies and an extra for myself. That way I will also have a friendship quilt to keep. I will be adding each ladies name and state to the blocks.
Everyone has picked out some fun blocks for us to make. I will definitely be getting some practice.
I'm putting up a list to help keep me a bit organized. Maybe someone will find a block or two to try out.

green, blue, burgundy, gold, biege etc. The color way is very dark. I am not a batik, bright color person.

A pretty impressive list. I think I can handle most of them. A few I will need to take it slow with but overall it looks like alot of fun! I will definitely get plenty of practice with the rotary cutter (something I need). Lots of fabric shopping in my future too :)
We are starting with June birthdays but since there are none...onto July!
