For my complete 

When I was designing this block,


I made this test block.  

Then I asked a few of my helpful stitchin' sisters to test 
the cutting and piecing instructions for me. 


This is the block that my friend Cherie made.

She was making blocks 12 inch blocks to bring to a guild event
so she sewed three more blocks and created this wonderful...


12.5" unfinished block

Thanks, Cherie!   I love this block!

So for my post today I decided to make up some more variations for a 12 inch block.

Sew I sewed four 6.5" envelope blocks

and came up with FOUR possibilities for a 12" finished block:


Block 1 : "Cherie's Inbox"



Block 2 : Mail Drop


Block 3 : Mail-a-Go-Round


Block 4 : Outbox


Which shall I choose to make a pillow?

Please help me decide .... :)
