Thank you for the alternate colorway on this year’s blocks! I recently finished up a mug rug where I used the red, black and white color scheme and replaced the block originally patterned for the rug with this one. Will make for a very cute Christmas gift! I also purchased a black and white holiday panel that I hope to use with this year’s RBW blocks to create a medallion style setting. Wish me luck in making it to display for next Christmas!
