Today was our

monthly quilt class and

with the 4th of july right around the corner, i decided to go with it for the theme.

i made these 'sparklers' that were on the country living website.

and i baked the lemon poppyseed mini bundt cakes for everyone.

we're working on the bunny hill blocks, but i think my favorite part is by far making all the goodies. and you can't beat being with friends!

here is a collage of my blocks. i've taken some inspiration from here and there. i LOVED the carrot idea from the happy zombie, and i decided the yo-yo's would be fun. actually, i didn't have time to applique the flowers, so that was a quicker alternative and i think they turned out pretty cute. the quilt will eventually go to my sister, i think she'll like it.

i hope you had a great day!

tell your hubby's, dad's, loved one's, happy father's day!!!
