Pandas and the Lone Ninja Birthday Block

I had to make a birthday block to go into a very special persons birthday quilt so I tried out my new block design called Rapture. Named after the new Pat Bravo fabric Rapture, which I will be using to make a quilt with this block (or a version of this block).

The birthday girl wanted red/turquoise/grey and an optional splash of orange in any design or sized block. This is how it looks so far - design wall of birthday blocks.

This is a 10" version of the block and because of the small pieces was difficult to match points so don't look too closely. Later in the month, I will be posting a tutorial for a larger block which can be paper pieced or machined pieced. It uses the EZ rulers, fat cats and easy three 60 degree and a circle template. For the 10" version I used a little dresden wedge made by Jenna Appleton


  1. Wow! That looks very fiddly! Look forward to seeing your Rapture version!

  2. The recipient of this block is going to love it so much!! Your fussy cutting is awesome!!

  3. Great fun block. Love the colours and the fussy cut fabrics look wonderful. Looking forward to the tutorial.

  4. Awesome! looks very complicated and the points look fine to me,
