I had the best of intentions to really make a dent in my projects yesterday, but ended up having less time to sew than I hoped. I did finish these 6 1/2 inch blocks. They are variations of the Oregon Star block with the lights and darks reversed. I'm not sure the red and black one has encough contrast. Both blocks are to be included in prayer shawls and I will wait to see how they play with the other blocks before deciding whether or not to redo them.
