3×6 Bee Blocks

I decided to participate in the 3×6 Sampler Bee for the round which is currently taking place. For those of you unfamiliar with this bee, each participant is grouped with 7 other people. Each person within that group fills out a short questionaire including the colors they would like used for their block as well as fabric likes/dislikes. After each participant has received that info. from the other peeps in their group they make one block for each person (so a total of 6 blocks) in the requested color scheme. The 6 blocks are all made using the same block pattern just different color combos.
Red & Aqua Requested:
Surprise Me Requested–she’s doing an Eye Spy quilt for her son:
Red & Pink Requested:
Gray & Green Requested:
Rainbow Requested(I think this one is my fave):
Blue & Green Requested:
The block I used is called the Friendship Scrap Block–appropriate, huh? =)  You can find the pattern here.
