You could win a class & help me look for some patterns!

A fellow blogger and artist is having a giveaway on her blog for an online class, so I thought I would let you know about it!  It is Melanie Testa, the author of "Inspired to Quilt".
She is having an online class over at in less than 2 weeks, and if you go to her blog and leave a comment then you may be a lucky winner!
The class is called "Let's Exchange Some Art", and will dive into techniques on decorating papers for ATC's, decorating envelopes and lots of other techniques.  Go to and check out the class description and all the other online classes they offer.
Here are some pictures so you can see what to expect.....
Cool tags.......

Today I am madly rushing around, packing up envelopes to be shipped out, and trying to finish more work to send off to waiting swappers and customers.  Below are blocks for a 3.5 inch block swap I am in on flickr.  There are 15 of us in the group and each of us had to make a 3.5 inch block (for each person in the group) with a BBQ or Picnic theme.
What is a picnic without sunshine?
Glad I have these little sunny faces to look at today, because the sun is struggling to come out here.  Some of the other members have done cool  blocks like a hot dog, lemonade, and even a dog catching a Frisbee over a checkered picnic blanket.  Don't worry when I receive my blocks you will see them here!
So while I was wondering what I would do with these blocks, one morning at 5am, I remembered some block patterns I had purchased in 1999!
They are Piece O Cake patterns called Pin Pals.  Unfortunately this is all I bought.....
Does anyone have any of these?  Maybe you know where I could find more?  HELP!
Let me know please......
Back to packing envelopes and sewing! Have a great day!

Your little sunny blocks are cute and really fit the theme nicely! Nicely done.

Love your blocks!!!
I looked and could not find any of the Piece of Cake stuff :(
I will check with a few friends and see if they might have this.

Dawn, I found a place that has 4 of them, supposedly, but you have one already, the pineapple. They have a clock, a telephone and a flower in a pot.

Here's the link- after the page loads, scroll down about 4/5 of the way.

These are really cute, from what I can see in your photo- I can see why you want more!

Good luck, hope they still have them. If you need someone to call them, I can do that for you. (I know how much it costs to call the US from the Bahamas, gulp!)
