RSC15 Sampler - January blues

The rainbow color for January is medium blues.  12" stars will each have a 6" sampler block in the center square.  I didn't want to do the card trick block, so I created a substitution.  I think it goes by several names, indian hatchet or arrowhead ? and also the " O "  version of the X's and O's pattern.




I'm holding out for the specs on the alternating blocks. I considered creating my own version, but I see the colors change within the block, to associate with it's neighboring color, so I'm trying to be patient.  In the meantime, I'm linking up with Angela at Soscrappy where other creative quilters are showing off their scrappy rainbow blocks.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Both of your alternatives are wonderful. I like the airy feel of the first and the movement around the circle in the second.
