Six, Seven

You know how sometimes you get into a book and it is just so darned good that you don't want it to end?

That's kind of how it is for me with these blocks.

I love making them.

There are five more to go.

A couple of people asked me what the name of the block was. I didn't know. I had seen the block on somebody's blog and figured out the math and copied it.

Research indicates that it has been called Prickly Pear and it has been called Roll Roll Cotton Boll. I think what I'm doing is scrappier than those blocks.

Each of my blocks has the same fabric for the center, and then six other fabrics. Other than the center, no fabric is repeated throughout the dozen blocks.

Always interesting to me to observe how the pattern seems to change based on the value placement of fabrics. These appear to be two different patterns to me. They are very fun scrap blocks. When I see your blocks it makes me think of a birthday party. Explain that to me, if you can. : )
