Double Star, or Hope of Hartford

Yet another possibility for RSC2016 is this block called Double Star or Hope of Hartford.  It's basically just a double pinwheel block offset with a center square.  I pieced the orange one first, from memory, then went back and checked to make sure I was doing it right.  I think I like the light/med/dark distribution on the green one better than the orange one.


It's a pretty simple block, with just the partial seaming to give it some interest.  Another 5" block to add to my collection.

With all the possible RSC blocks I'm currently in love with, and the difficulty I'm having in cutting some from the herd, I'm starting to think I might just do a different couple of blocks each week of the month, until I either end up with a huge stack of quilts, or decide to ditch some of them for 2017.  No harm, no foul, and I don't have to make any hard decisions.
Just keeping my options open, right?  Getting to be wishy-washy is just a bonus...

I think having options is good. It might be fun to just make whatever blocks you are in the mood for each month. A rainbow sampler for 2016.

Wishy-washy works for me. This reminds me there was a laundromat when I was growing up here named Wishy-Washy.

Your wishy-washiness is endearing.

If you find every 5 inch block there is, make some of all of them next year for RSC you can then be mixy-matchy at the end of 2016.

Don't fret over it. As 2016 rolls by, you'll see some blocks with take the lead and separate from the others to win the race. And you can take the leftovers into 2017, and 2018, and 2019 lol. LOve the green best too. ;^)

The is the tricky part of the RSC 2106 - deciding just which projects to go with!
