You gals are picking some great colors for this. This first block is very interesting.

Hi Barb, On the Facebook page someone made a whole quilt top with repeats of this block in various colors.

Carrie, I love your colors and your block looks good! Love that dark orange with the daisies, second from the top... ❤️

I missed one point, but probably won’t redo. I like this block.

LOL I guess I will redo the block. My center 4 patch is backwards.

SBG I like the plaid; it really emphasizes the star points.
givio your fabric choices really show off the diagonal lines .... which is how I noticed my mistake.
carrie block looks great. I also like the fabric you’ve picked. They really look nice together.

It looks great to me, BRBeverly. Pretty fabrics!

Yes, this block is a bit trickier than it looks at first glance!

I want to make my other two blocks (in different colorways) but I've been trying to get a birthday present made first. My DIL had a birthday yesterday and I'm making her the cosmetics tote from By Annie. Once that's done and in the mail, I'll get back to my OS blocks.

BRBeverly, I'd just go with the block you have. Why make it an orphan? Unless you are collecting orphans... I think it looks fine the way it is. I like this block pattern done with equal size units for the 9patch. I think the pattern made that way is called 'Waterwheel'. I've saved that in my to-do list. If you adjust the darks and lights, like you did on your center, you get some different looks that can be very interesting. I'll attach my save for my to-do list, so you can see, it's quite different in color placement than what we have for our January block.

carriem, Is it orange, like SBG mentioned? or are you using reds and greens?

I’ve been giving this BOM a lot of thought for a couple of days so I’m delighted to see this thread! I’m going to talk to a friend tomorrow to see if she will join the fun, but she may opt out. I have three collections of fabrics to choose from, so I will wait to make a decision which to use till I talk to my friend. Then I’ll come back to share.

I love all the blocks you’ve shown!
