FBP and Friendship Bag

For some reason I called this FBP Block "Fool's Puzzle", but I think it is called "Fools Square" on Quilter's Cache. Since it is small, I went with the very bright colors and funny aminal prints that I had used in some of the other blocks. Donna (QuiltPixie) reminded us that the only folks who care what we actually do with the blocks we make are "us" - as in the individual quilters. I'm thinking I'll take all the bright kid-friendly blocks and add some of the kid prints that Erin had left over (and left with me) when I helped her make the quilt for Wendy's baby... I'll make a donation quilt for a small kid. I really like the bright blue and the bright green bubble print! This block was supposed to have HSTs in the corners, but I didn't like those, so I took them off and went with the solid blue print corners.

Now that Florence got her bag, I can show you what I made... my first bag ever. The bag was dead easy, and I'll probably end up making bags as Christmas presents, or as wrapping for Christmas presents... they were that much fun!
I put some tea, biscotti, and a fat quarter of darling Halloween Fabric inside Florenc's bag - she said she liked all the little extras, so that made me feel pretty good about sending them off to her.

    How cute are those fabrics in your 'puzzle' block and they look so good together.
