latest buck-a-block complete

I am working down to the wire on this month's project completion, but the June buck-a-block kept getting in the way, so I went ahead and finished it
I really like the way it turned out, especially with the newly purchased pink dots (Mixmasters by Robert Kaufman) that the lovely ladies at Piece by Piece helped me pick out, given the disparate black/red/pink blocks I brought to the shop with me.

And, since I have completed block 5 of this colorway, and 6 blocks will make a baby quilt, I started sketching possible layouts.
Here is one idea.  It uses the words "tomboy princess" (I love words in quilts!), which I saw on a piece of fabric recently, along with images of football/hockey gear, lipstick, etc.
inspiration: this print came from a bandana

I have a black/red/white fabric that I'm reserving for possible sashing or backing.  Who knows how this will all turn out?
