Karla, I really like that larger print as a background.

Judy, do you draw up your block in EQ to paper-piece? As I was cutting all the pieces with the paper template I was wondering why The patterns for this block  weren't paper-piece, seemed like that would be easier.

Here's mine......I miss-cut one of the shapes and then had to piece smaller pieces together to have enough to finish the block.

Ooh, I love this block.  Judy, your light background makes the star and the corners really pop.  Jacy, I never would have noticed if you hadn't pointed it out about the pink fabrics being pieced.  

I haven't looked at this one yet, but if you want to PP and don't want to use EQ, you could also copy what Elizabeth did for Abigail's Swing:  http://www.quiltersclubofamerica.com/groups/loyal_union_soldier_sampler_quilt/forum/t/44911.aspx?PageIndex=2

Jacy, I  found the actual block in EQ, didn't have to draw it. I was also wondering why she hadn't supplied a paper piecing option as it seemed to be the easiest way with only 3 main sections.

I think she gives instructions for the way the block way made in the book "The Union Quilters" or maybe it's the way she made it.

Karla, Judy and Jacy your blocks great, Love all the colors.  Karla, I think we used the same blue for our star, great fabric.

Here's mine, I hand pieced this one.  I can see that the center doesn't quite match up, but it is going to  stay that way!

Pretty block Sue. I like your fabrics.

My version of this block came from EQ. The white parts in the centre are smaller than the ones in the book:

I foundation pieced my block with freezer paper.

Wow, really striking Kris. I also used the EQ pattern and noticed the center was a bit smaller.
