The specific block doesn't show up very well in the photo so here's a crop for detail-This link has some of the story behind the Kansas Quilt Walk.
Rocky Road to Kansas also resembles Week 2's Amethyst, though for this one, traditionally, the four points are randomly string pieced on foundations.
To make this week's block distinctly different from the Amethyst, I decided to piece the points. I foundation pieced them to make use of some hand dyed yellow fabrics that I had only small scraps of.
I don't know why I had the yellow and gold striped fabric in my collection, but it was fun to piece it to make concentric squares for the center of the block. Dorry sent me the rich dotted green batik that lets my twisty golden yellow star glow in the dark.
