Austen Family Album - Block 24, Wheel of Change

I've seen this block and think it a little awkward - and it reminds me of a swastika.

.... so I repeated my trick of using a busy print where I wish to de-emphasize the piecing. The shibori from Vicki Welsh for the rectangles makes all the statement I was interested in.

It's not the lighting that makes the block shade from top to bottom - I have a Daiwabo fabric that was printed in a gradation.  The lighter shades between the triangles at the top and the square in the center didn't make it into this block.
