Block 57

I decided to make this one a two colour block.  It could be quite interesting as multi-coloured too.

Here is everything all laid out and ready to go.  If you'd like, you can simplify the outer border by changing it to two flying geese set side by side.  You'll just wind up with an extra seam in the centre dark triangle.

Here are the flying geese for the middle border completed and more done with the triangles on the outer border.  Can you see that the middle is an Ohio star block?  Now the middle is assembled as a standard 9-patch.

Here is the first step complete for our centre 9-patch and the remaining triangles attached for the outer border.

Now the centre Ohio star is complete.  It's time to add the outer border.

Tada!  Our finished block!  I can't wait to see what everyone else does with this one.
