New England Block

Happily, Ms. Brackman modified the design of the block to make it easier to cut and piece at 8 inches. Makes a nice block this way, too.

The layout of this one is straightforward and should have been easy. For unknown reasons, I managed to change the orientation of some of the triangles, sewed the pink end of a blue-pink strip to the center square... I seemed to come up with a lot of ways to make this wrong. But it's pretty now that it's done, with the double pink and dark brown.

Very striking with the red (pink) against the brown. I like it!

I like that coral/pink fabric - have you used it previously? Also note your clever fussy cutting of that center "sashing". Another pretty block.
