Friday Scrapbag

This is one of two paper pieced blocks I made a while back. I just love the colors and thought it was just the thing to post for the end of the first week of spring 2010!
I made this block for a Scrap Bags paper piecing challenge. At the end of the challenge one lucky quilter won all of the blocks. Sad to say it wasn't me. (but it's my group so that wouldn't be fair)
The block is by Carol Doak. I love her patterns. It looks difficult I know but it's not. It's actually four blocks made separately and then sewn together like a four patch. Simple, right?
I think I'll use this pattern again to make a quilt over the summer. Lots of pink, yellow, orange, lavender and green (lime of course) flower colors.
Enjoy the weekend!

Beautiful block and what an awesome idea to have a group make blocks and then someone win them!

Happy Spring!

I love the fabrics.. pink and green.. look wonderful together.. depends on shades of course, but yours looks beautiful.
I can't wait to see it finished. Just wanted to drop in and say hi... sorry I haven't been a very good friend.
How are things going? What have you been up to?
