I really love this block. But then I love most of the blocks in this quilt. Jane certainly was an unbelievably creative quilter. Imagine coming up with 225 unique blocks.

Foundation pieced.
Print or trace the block diagram onto foundation paper, number and cut out as in the photo.
IMPORTANT: You have to mirror the block diagram.
Software users: Remember to change the block size to 5"x8" before printing.
(Remember you can click on the photos for larger versions.)

Foundation piece all the numbered sections and trim the seam allowances to 1/4". Cut the unnumbered pieces out of fabric as well, remembering to add 1/4" seam allowance.

Assemble the bottom section.
Attach the two side sections to the center "triangle".

Sew the outside triangles to either side.

Assemble the block by sewing the sections together as in the diagram.
