I just realised I hadn't posted about these when I received them. They are top to bottom: Moda Sweetwater Make Life Charm Pack, Moda Sanae Panache in Exclamation, Flourish and Fearless all in the Pomegrante colour way and Amy Butler Garden Maze. Purchased from Whipstitch Fabrics on Etsy.
The Panache fabrics were used for binding on my Simple Squares Quilt and I still have another Panache Charm Pack to use up so I will add the rest of the yardage into that. Make Life and Amy Butler just because I love them!

My points don't match up quite as perfectly as I would like. Doing this block has been great for me though as I am no longer scared of paper piecing. Also it has yet again shown me that fabrics which I may not instantly like on their own, look great paired with other fabrics. It also took me a lot less time than I thought to make this which of course means I want to make a whole quilt of these for myself and as you can see below I have become quite attached to these blocks!
And now for the fun photo, we are supposed to add a fun photo to Flickr of our "blocks on tour". So I decided this evening that my block and I should bond and spend some quality time together. Does this mean watching England v US in the World Cup. Nope - I am Irish and by its colour scheme the block is honorary Irish and neither of us are particularly intersted in football. So here is my block spending its evening in the garden with a nice cold glass of wine, a stack of magazines and a netbook to catch up on blog reading.

I made mine with only 1 charm pack so it is pram or buggy sized. The quilting is 1/4 inch from the seam line in red thread. Its going to be my "If its a girl" present for a friend who I know will appreciate a baby present in something other than baby pink.
