Pentagon Week, Day Five

I received a collection of fabrics in 2013 from Ana Griffin called Chinoiserie. One of the prints was so exotic looking. It's the one with that regal pheasant sitting on her cage. I still had some of it left.

I used it in this quilt which I gave to a neighbor who was given a cancer diagnosis. She was thrilled to have such a beautiful quilt to snuggle under. I used the pheasant print to set my One Block Wonder blocks.

I made this pentagon wreath last year and it was looking for a special motif for the center. I remembered that pheasant print. I stitched the wreath onto the centered print and then trimmed it away. Now it's ready to be attached to the green background square.

Then I stitched it to the green square and trimmed away the excess from underneath.

Here's my block! Now, what was I going to do?

I pulled out more strips and decided to begin surrounding it as I've done with several other unique blocks, orphan blocks, etc. This is what I have so far. Strips and corner squares will be added until I'm pooped out!

And one more orphan block that I discovered some companions for. But I love this fussy cut center motif, don't you?

Hope you enjoyed Pentagon Week. I've got to think of some more themes. I kind of like these, don't you?


  1. I DO like these - all of them! There are so many creative possibilities with pentagons - as many as with hexagons, for sure! Thanks for sharing some great ideas in this series.
