My August Blocks

here are eight blocks that I've had finished for a while. I needed 2 AA batteries for my camera, so I didn't take the pic. The sneak peek talk got me thinking, 'hey, I never posted those blocks!'. So here they are, glad they're on time to be included!

Tami's August Blocks

Sorry I didn't get these posted earlier. I whipped them up the night before we left on vacation. Then when I got back, I totally forgot that I hadn't gotten the pictures up on the blog.

I wasn't sure I would like this color way, but isn't it great! I just love the way they came together!

Terri's August Blocks

Here's are my 7 blocks for the lotto this month. For some reason these colors are not photographing well for me!


Kate's chocolate cherries

Here are 8 that I made - I did use more than 3 pinks and 3 browns as I was using up a few scraps. And I promise that they blocks are not odd and wavy in person, they just need to be pressed a bit better as the edges are lifting up!

Sneak Peekers Virtual Pinwheel Quilt

Here are some of the blocks made by sneek peekers Debbie (dzrunner), Judee (3199), Judy (possumtownquilter), Michelle (momof11), Tami ( and Wilma (wilmaNC) and me.
