I was all excited for today, as it is the day Riley Blake revealed the second block in their Mystery Block of the Month series. If you remember, my first block looked like this. 

Fairly masculine, or unisex at the very least. My plan for this quilt was to use the owl fabric in every block and keep it in the bolder, boyish colors. And even though it's a Mystery Block of the Month, I didn't quite see how they could throw anything at me where I might not be able to keep on my theme. 

And then this showed up on Pinterest, block two. Can hearts be masculine? My first instinct was to go brown or orange for these scraps, but then I have no owls. I think all blues may be overkill though, as I was planning on a bit of blue in every block and don't really want a blue quilt. So, where am I to go? What would you do? 


  1. oh dear,hope you work something out,i love your 1st block.xx

  2. I'm a bit late to the party...

    I don't think a heart is masculine either...but if you turn it sideways it's not a heart anymore.

    Did you finish the block? What did you come up with?
