The latest block in the Civil War Block of the Week series is Texas Tears.
I have not made a block constructed like this one before - it proved challenging mostly because I didn't bring the measurements from the screen to the cutting table and cut some pieces at 1 7/8ths inches instead of 1 7/16ths. Quilt blocks don't fit together well when you make mistakes like that. Happily, that kind of mistake (cutting too large) is easily undone. The seams are all short - seam rippers are handy tools. No tears required.
