Here is the first block, using two fabrics and a background.
And here is the second block, made from the same pattern, but looking much different:
The center fabric here is my focus fabric and I knew that constructing this block would be tricky because the center square has to be made from 4 triangles and I was afraid the focus fabric, being so large-scaled and busy would look messy when peiced together from 4 different pieces. So to try to alleviate that, I fussy cut four different motifs--one for each triangle. Luckily, the eye seems drawn to them, more than the seams, so I'm fairly happy with it.
Here are both of them together:
And here they are with January's block (done twice as well.)
I think they are so much fun to make!
Have a great day!
