Not much time this morning but here's a picture of the August smackdown blocks I made (all three):
The picture's not great but it's early and I don't have time to fiddle. I like this block. I approached it first as a traditional 9 block but didn't know for sure if I had enough fabric to make all of them that way so went for the scrappy look. Maybe I'll throw in a "matching" 9 block here and there to make it interesting. I think the pastels will look nice, but I'll save the dark one for another quilt.
I'm going to use about three different pastel solids for the star center.
I'll probably have it finished just in time for the September smacking.
