Blossom Heart Quilts has started a new BOM quilt along called Milky Way. It is a paper pieced block each month and they look like a lot of potential for fabrics and colorways. These blocks are 10" and of varying levels of intricacy but all are accomplished by paper piecing. You must download each paper before the end of the month so you must download January real soon! The link takes you to Craftsy which then allows you to download it for free. I really think this will make up into a pretty quilt and hope you take a look at it.
The double arrow block from Simple Simon and Co. is very pretty. January is the month of looking into the past and then looking forward into the new year so this arrow pointing both directions seems appropriate.
Fresh Lemon Quilts has a wonderful page of free patterns. There are a lot of good ideas on these pages. Enjoy.
