pineapple quilt blocks made with Aura fabric

Mister Domestic invited me to his Aura Blog Party and I was like, "woaaaah.", and then saw the fabric and I was like, "woaaaah." and then it came to me that this would make the perfect pineapple quilt, "woaaahh..."

Coral Floral Card... from Home Designs by Amanda

A little birdy told me... to just wing it! ~ LOL ~ Okay, sorry for the bad joke ;) but today's card does include a cute bird and some shiny paper.

However, if I was to make this card again, I'm pretty sure I
