I am working on plans for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2022.  I woke up an hour early this morning and just had to get some ideas into fabric.   Choosing new blocks is always such fun!  I am thinking of the Blackford's Beauty block for my 2 inch strips and squares.  It isn't typically done with a four patch in the center, but I think it might work.   The chevrons can be done as strips or as flying geese.  I will try it both ways to see which is better for block construction.  Technically the chevrons have fewer seams, but the bulk might be less resulting in sharper points with the other method.   I also think that I might make the star points black instead of white.  They might stand out more that way.  I do like the consistent solid star points though.  That part I think I will keep.   
So I am learning that Blackford Ford is a Civil War battle site in Maryland.   A lot of  quilt block naming happened during the Civil War.   
I also had to pop by and visit the sunrise this morning on my way to work.   It was just peeking over the horizon as I drove past an access point on my way to work.   Definitely worth a short pit stop to enjoy the start of a new day.   
Coming back to school after a week off is a harsh transition for the teachers as well as the students.  Just 17 days until winter break though, so time to get back to work!

That block is really pretty. I love stars of any kind, so if that is a little hint of things to come in 2022 I'm all IN.
