I gave in and made the first block and I'm really happy with how the background fabric looks. The background fabric is Michael Miller - Petals of Antiquity in Dove Gray and the red fabric is Kona Cotton in Ruby. I'm using Aurifil Mako' Ne 50/2 for the piecing.
This block was paper foundation pieced and this time around I remembered to mirror it so everything is going in the same direction as the original block.
