Country Threads Block of the Month

I am trying to complete all my UFO's and not purchase new kits, etc.  On Country Threads' blog,, they started a "free" block of the month on Jan. 1, 2013.  The first of each month, Country Threads will release additional blocks.  For me this is a good way to use up my Thimbleberry fabrics left from my sample making years.  I have a whole drawer full of scraps.  The next block(s) will be released Friday, Feb. 1. Below are my blocks completed in January.
Care to join me?  Oh, come on ..... you must have a box, bag, or draw of fabric scraps that need to be used up.  Notice the background in the large star... I didn't have enough of the same background fabric so added another background fabric.  THINK Scrappy!

Yours in quilting,
