This was one of the more trying patterns of this sampler. Similar to Weathervane—in difficulty and construction. These are twin blocks, only differing in the use of colours. I took the same shortcut when sewing the four “rays” pointing to the corners as I did in the Weathervane block. Funny how different they look merely by shifting the stress to some other pieces by using lighter or darker colours.
