Looking for suggestions...

This is a house block, 4 1/2" square, that I received from participating in a Blogland Neighborhood thingy that was hosted by Beth at  She sent this block to all who participated.  (Isn't it adorable?)  I would like to make a bed-sized quilt out of it but this is as far as I got.  Any suggestions as to where to go from here?  Right now it's 20" square.   
Here's some fabrics I have that I'm debating on, but what should I do???  I love the little bird fabric and was thinking about making corner blocks with that, but that's as far as I can get my muddled brain to go.  Am I being too narrow-minded in sticking to all these same colors?  I do have a pretty substantial stash, but I'm open to all kinds of suggestions.   

Victoria from made a fantastic quilt out of her little block.  Check her blog out - it's a few posts back but well worth the effort of finding it.  (I would link it here if I could figure it out!) (At this point while my daughter,, reads this I can imagine her rolling her eyes, or sighing in frustration :-)  Good thing she loves me!
So, I would greatly appreciate some input from all you creative geniuses out there!  And thanks in advance!


  1. Don't we love our techies who know how to do it all? Your square is cute! What do you feel like doing-log cabin squares around? It'll hit you, just leave it hanging around....

  2. It's a nice block......maybe add multiple borders with some piecing? I love the red fabric with white in your picture for a border. I'm stuck on picking out colors for my next block in a quilt along! I wish you luck.....I'm sure it will turn out great :)


I love to hear from you!
