The Bull Run Nine Patch pattern ran in the Quiltmaker September/October 2010 issue.  I don't enjoy doing applique, although I enjoy seeing what other people do with it, and I do not have an embroidery machine, so I also don't want to undertake this little joyous hand stitching adventure.  To compensate, I blew my pattern out one more repeat and then did the feather quilting around the edge.  I like mine and it wasn't as fussy as the published one was.

I love the way the block placement gives an illusion of curves.  I had to look closeup to make sure the curves were weren't.  If this makes any sense at all.

The "curves" are an optical illusion, created by hst combined with the "wonder triangles" that you see in both the Eclipse quilts as well.  I have the Quilt Sense Wonder Triangles by Marti Michell that allows you to create the 60 degree triangles very easily in several sizes.  I pretty much am not a fan of sewing curves, but I certainly like the looks of them. :)
