Cutest Baby Contest

These blocks would win the 'Cutest Baby Block' in most community Fourth of July contests.  Have you joined the Temecula Quilt Company July Cakestand Challenge?  The block is a bit fiddly, but so cute - finishes at 2"!  Jan, this looks made for you. 

 My blocks aren't perfect, but I'm OK with that.  I'm all caught up - one block a day for the month of July.


In fact, I'm a block ahead.  I had a mishap in placement on my first block and thought I'd use if for the center of the back.  Now, I think I'll use it on the front - give 'em something to talk about.

Your blocks are so sweet. I would use the mishap one too. It will be fun to see what they grow up to be.

I saw that SAL and am trying to behave and NOT join in. I have made a few of that block in that size in the past year and I know I can't make one a day and keep up with deadline projects. So please let me watch your progress. I love the blocks you have made so far!

I'm making them too but I cut and sewed a week's worth at the same time so I'm on track.

So sweet. Do I recognize that Cocheco Mills blue in the background? I adore that fabric! I really like the scrappy look of your blocks.

Wonderful blocks - and yes, use your odd man out on the front - it's beautiful. In fact, I think I might prefer it...
