Block-a-Palooza Block 10

I love this one so much I'm squeaking! By now you will not be surprised to see that I changed things up just a little bit, using six fabrics:

Thanks, Amy Ellis! And Philip Jacobs, who created the charming bird in the middle. I have a measly FQ of this fabric*, and almost couldn't bear to cut into it. 

These colors together are so delicious, I want to make a whole quilt from them. There was a time when I  thought grey was always and forever boring, but I'm learning to love it with the right playmates.

* What's that? You remember seeing a very similar print here in a fabric post somewhen? Ahem, yes, I do have more than two yards of "summer tree" in the turquoise colorway. So it's not like I'm starving for it. Today, though, I am grooving on the grey version, and I want more.


  1. SQUEEK! Me too!! I think you've outdone yourself this time!

  2. This one is the prettiest block yet. I love the colors and the bird

  3. Thanks for the kind comment on my blog. I hope someone else can use the FBA info and adapt it for themselves.

    Wow, these quilt blocks are gorgeous! The colors are luscious and the blocks are so intricate and beautiful. These are going to look great when they're quilted!
