Layer Cake Quilt Along - Block 6

I'm caught up!  In fact, since there's a week until the next block is released, I consider myself ahead :)  Just today I cut and pieced and finished up Block 6.  After some initial confusion with the instructions was cleared up, this turned out to be a great block.  Easy to cut, easy to piece and I think it's a very versatile block.  In fact, I'd be tempted to make the whole quilt out of these types of blocks, as the designer did originally!  I was able to use scraps for a lot of this block, so I think I ended up only having to use one full square (for border) and then a chunk of another for the large green portion.

With this block, we are officially 1/2 way through the blocks for the Quilt Along.  Here are the 6 completed blocks, laid out in order so far.  I'm really enjoying how this is turning out, and I'm looking forward to the next 6 blocks.  And then maybe, MAYBE, I'll actually conquer my New Year's Resolution of completing a quilt this year!
