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?

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.
