Layer Cake Quilt Along - Block 7

Block 7 was posted earlier this week, and I managed to keep on schedule and get it done here this weekend!  I liked this block, it wasn't as confusing to put together as I thought it would be.  I can't say that I'm thrilled with how the fabric choices flowed together, but that's my own fault for using scraps for a majority of the block!  I'd like to try it again some time and use colors as suggested in the directions.

I should add that the talented designer of this block, Celine Perkins of Perkins Dry Goods/A Few Loose Threads, was nice enough to do a giveaway on her blog in conjunction with the release of this block as part of the Quilt Along.  I was the lucky winner of a fabulous Charm Baskets* quilt pattern (an incentive to keep working on getting better!) and a Perfect Piecing Seam Guide (which I desperately need to learn how to use).  So THANK YOU to Celine!  Also, even if you're not doing the Quilt Along, but like this block, Celine posted a tutorial for a table runner using this block -- it's been added to my to-do list!
