Quilt Guild Challenge Blocks

At my last quilt guild meeting we were given a small piece of focus fabric. We could make any block pattern we liked, adding any fabric we liked, as long as it used the focus fabric and measured 10" finished. All the blocks would be combined to make a quilt to be auctioned to benefit a Sacramento area breast cancer center.

I chose Sister's Choice quilt block, because it makes up well as 10" finished and the name is female-related.
The focus fabric has large flowers and I decided to fussy cut the flowers so they are centered in some of the squares of the quilt block. I added a light yellow, medium yellow-green, dark olive paisley and a pink with brown polka dots.
I made two nearly identical Sister's Choice blocks, and I think they turned out pretty nicely.

I'll bring the blocks to tomorrow's guild meeting. I hope our quilt raises lots of money for the breast cancer center.
