Finished my Ice Cream Beauty block

Got my Ice Cream New York Beauty block done! I"m going to make 3 more and make a really fun wall hanging!

And here is a peek at what I have been working on the last month and half. Emily's graduation quilt. This is just 4 blocks - there will be more.....

How pretty that ice cream block is - yummy! Look forward to seeing how your wallhanging turns out!

Good finish to your sundae block.

I am intrigued by the graduation quilt. I enlarged the picture but can't read the writing. Is this fabric that has writing on it or something someone has written on?

My mouth dropped at that ice cream block (I LOVE it) and then I saw the graduation block! Wow! I LOVE how everyone is writing SO much to Emily. I LOVE graduation quilts like that and really had a great time when I made them for my boys. I can't wait to see your finished quilt!

The NYB is a real beauty and looks perfect!!!
What a fun graduation quilt. I can't wait to see it all together and hear more about what it says on it.

The NYB looks delish :-)
And what a great idea for Emily's quilt. Did you sew the block together before the writing started? I have something similar to do for a friend but the writing goes all the way to the edge...no seam allowance, so I'm going to have to applique a whole stack of blocks on to another fabric. :-(

The Hunter's star looks great! Love the colors.

Oh my gosh...Emily's friends write A LOT. And here I wrote a lot because I am her sister and felt a little obligated :P Good thing I did though or mine would have stuck out like a sore thumb!

I realy like this quilt. It is a treasure for life. How are you going to quilt this one? Probaly in the ditch so you gan still read the writing.
