April do.Good Stitches blocks

For the April block for the Emerge Circle of do.Good Stitches, Kelly asked for a simple block  called Brick House (it's a log cabin) from Little Bluebell.
You can find the tutorial here, but note that the measurements she lists don't include seam allowances, so if you're looking to make it and want to end up with a 12.5" (unfinished) block, be sure to add a 1/2" to each number. So the center square is 4.5", and the surrounding pieces should be cut as follows:
1 - 4.5" square
2 - 4.5" x 8.5" rectangles
1 - 4.5" x 12.5" rectangle
Kelly asked for a navy print in the middle surrounded by prints in shades of yellow heading toward the mustard end of the spectrum. She was hoping for a truly scrappy look, so she asked for as many different yellow prints as possible. In my stash, finding mustard prints is not a problem. :)
