2 Babies! 2 More Roses!

It ain't over folks!  
I am still completely in love with this silly block!
I started out with the biggest square I could get from my last scrap of the Bonnie and Camille print...something around 8".
When I placed my order for more gingham, I failed to realize it was flannel!  But it is a happy accident!  I love it, and used it for the binding too!
The amazing polka dot roses on the back are "Falling Roses" by Tanya Whelan.
1 Prairie Rose!
It finished out at 45" x 45"...and will be winging it's way to Hawaii soon!

These were picked with a purple-ish nursery in mind...
I just love the gray on gray for the background.  I picked all these up at Joanns, and have ordered a flannel version of the gray for the backing!
It will measure right at 40" x 40", using 1 yard of the background, and 1/2 yard of each of the solids.
2 Prairie Rose!
I could obviously make these all day long...such a fun easy little quilt, and so many different possibilities!
You can find my tutorial for a 9 inch version of this block here!
Do you have a current block obsession? 
 I would love to know what it is!

linking up with CrazyMomQuilts, for the first time in ages it seems like!

edited to add the second finished Rose:

These make me happy!

These are fabulous quilts!! Beautifully done! I am currently a little obsessed with diamonds, I have not made a quilt yet but have been playing endlessly with them. There's one coming. . . soon ;)

Both color combinations look good; and they are so different in effect! Nice.

My current favorite block is Urban Chickens.

The first colour combination is quite striking and the flannel will make it even softer. I really like your new header!

So many things to like here......b/w gingham flannel paired with quilting cotton in florals-soooo great- and the large block size-and your corner label is a wonderful idea-plus your new header photo! Also, I was able to leave a comment right from your post...super yay!!
