This pattern is also known as Arkansas Crossroads. It's very easy to put together and a great leader ender project.
The first two pics are Goodnight Irene, the last is Be Attitudes, from whence the leftover squares came. Please excuse the poor quality of the pics, I couldn't

Our guild had a challenge. The dark blue civil war print was the challenge fabric. We had to choose a habitat we like. I chose my sewing room! Enjoy!

I did 9 rows of 7 blocks, plus the extra half-block border that completes the points. Haven't decided on a quilting pattern yet, but I'm tossing around an idea. Thanks for looking!

I have misplaced the talented quilter's name on the post, can someone please tell me the name of the pattern and if I can purchase one, I cannot figure out how it comes together, thank you

I have used the Angler 2 in the past, that fits on the bed of my machine, and had fairly good luck but just wondering about trying one of these other methods. What is the method you use or what works best for you. Just curious.
