Blocks for Aiden

In the Redbird Bee this month Kyndra asked us to make a block of our own choosing for her 6 year-old son Aiden. She gave us fabrics in teal, navy, grass and chocolate.

I noticed that the teal matched the blue in Summersville and decided he might like a row of those cute cars from the line. The block is a variation of a Pineapple block.


She also included this adorable sock monkey fabric and I had to make up another little bonus block using the monkey fabric. It may or may not fit in with the final quilt, but I thought maybe she could add to it and make a pillow or something! 


Thanks, Kendra. It sure was fun playing with Aiden's fabrics! . . . Cindy
