    I have made the block, but I used it in a Quilt of Valor quilt for my brother. It was fairly easy to make, HST's and squares. I had to reduce it to a 12" block, but no problems there. In place of her black in the block, I used small gold star fabric, for her blue, I used the red w/white stars, and for her red, I used the blue w/white star fabric.

    I've never noticed that block before. Very pretty. And it does look a lot like the yarn "God's Eye"s that I've done before. IMO, it would be majestic in a big block--------60" square or so.

    Don't you often wonder where and how and why some patterns get their names....this one is so interesting....but I wonder what its history is
    Yes that is a real picture of my hometown Temecula, California. We feature premiere Wineries, World Class Golf Courses, Pechanga Indian Casino and Hot Air Balloons

    I just printed it off a couple of weeks back to make a quilt for my DD. I just love and think it will be a beautiful quilt.

    I have used it as the center of a quilt. Batiks and black, much like the picture. It was outstanding. Wish I had taken a picture before I gave it away.

    Beautiful block. Looks like black & batiks would be the way to go.
