A modified radiant block

To make a king-size quilt, I had to add 13 "radiant" blocks to Carol Doak's Simply Radiant Blocks of the Month (12) and then I'll need to make 24 connector blocks. I found 13 other free blocks Carol designed that I thought would work, but they were all 12" blocks, so I shrunk them down to 8.25, figured out the new cutting directions, will add setting triangles to each so they are 12" blocks again. The first one I made is my favorite free block designed by Carol Doak. It was to commemorate her Yahoo group reaching 700 members. Now we have close to 7,000 members. Seems fitting to re-use this block in a different setting. I think it'll fit right in with the others.
