I struggled with this block, really really struggled. Not making the block that was very easy, but deciding on a theme. I suck at applique, so I knew adding something to my block was a no go, so I wanted a theme. But I"m not a big novelty fabric person and the first theme I thought of that I knew I had fabric to use was "monkeys" and she had done that as her sample. So I was talking to my sister and she reminded me of the a quilt she made that used Texas and western fabrics. I started digging through the left overs and found enough to make my block. Emily did say anything goes and I hope she meant it. I really like the block, and it was fun once I found the fabrics.
From the blocks I've seen so far, I think Emily is going to end up with a very cute quilt, and I can't wait to see it finished. I am headed to the post office to drop this off later this afternoon, so hopefully she will have it soon.
