Henrietta Whiskers - Block One

I'd like to introduce you to the oh so adorable HenriettaWhiskers! She's a sweet little squirrel created by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs and is part of her 2011 Mystery Block Of The Month.
This year, it's an autumn themed quilt and oh by the way....did I mention that it's a FREE download on Anne's blog??? A new block will be available on the 5th of every month. You can download the first block here.
Well, I fell in love with little Henrietta the moment I saw her. But I usually work in pastels or brights. I don't have a lot of dark or muted or autumny fabrics in my stash. Soooo.....my version of an autumn quilt includes lots of lavender, celery & moss green, soft pumpkin, butter yellow, aqua and of course a little pink.....
I had my layout done and my pieces cut.....ohhhh....about an hour after I saw Anne's big reveal of Henrietta....
And Block One of Henrietta is now done.
That's actually supposed to be a bouquet of autumn leaves that Henrietta is holding. But in my Henrietta's world the autumn leaves turn pink!

Now that Block One of Henrietta Whiskers is done I'm getting back to my pink and green Hooterville Quilt. Hopefully, I'll be able to show you some preppy pink and green owls very soon!

Happy Sewing,
Jenny
