Two special days

Last month, there were two anniversary days. I am still getting caught up with my block-a-day project for the month of July so here are blocks celebrating these days.

First, a piece of “cake” for Toni.

It may look like a slice of pie, but it is a piece of cheesecake.

My daughter-in-law’s favorite cake is burnt almond, but I’ve never seen what it looks like (or tasted it). This birthday on July 25 she had to make do with a cheesecake. Toni is a wonderful daughter-in-law. She is tall and lovely, plus she is a quilter. What more could any mother-in-law want?

If you would like to make a 4-inch paper pieced cheesecake block, click HERE for the foundation pattern to print out for your own personal use. It’s called “pie” on the foundation, but you can “bake” a cheese cake, too.
We celebrated our 45th anniversary on July 26. The traditional symbol for this milestone is the gemstone Sapphire. We had a nice quiet day at home.
So here is the block for our anniversary:
You might want to make your own 4-inch paper pieced gemstone – say a ruby, emerald, or diamond. If you do, click on the small graphic below and you will find two foundations for putting together this block.

Christine,

Thank you so much! My other favorite is the homemade cheesecake that Davis makes for the family picnic every year, so the "pie" is perfect - just like the real thing! Happy anniversary to you too!!!
