Layer Cake QAL

I am participating in the Moose on the Porch Quilts Layer Cake Quilt-a-long and have made 5 blocks so far.

I am using a layer cake by Adorn It called Life's A Hoot. This layer cake has 9 different fabrics, with 5 squares of each fabric. I think this has been helpful for this particular QAL because I have been able to save scraps and use them in multiple blocks. It has also been helpful in enabling me to change the patterns slightly.

I know my son's 1st grade teacher likes owls and I may give this quilt to her as an end of the year gift.

Here is my progress so far.

Block 1 (this is one of my favorites):
Block 2 (with fussy cut owls):
Block 3 (my first basket block):
Block 4 (I love star blocks):
Block 5 (thought this might be a busy block, but it is also one of my favorites. I altered the pattern a bit):
Block 6 instructions should be posted on Tuesday!
