Sometimes simple is better. I have been doing these time intensive projects and needed to take a break and do one of my state blocks. This block is super easy. It only took me 30 minutes from cutting to completing the block.

Here is what the block looks like without fabrics.
Here are the fabrics I picked.

Here are the pieces cut.

Fabric 1 Main fabric
* Fussy-cut (4) Template B. (MM B9)
Fabric 2 (pink)
* Cut (8) Template A (MM B12)
or Cut (8) 2-1/2" squares
* Cut (1) Template C (MM B8)
or Cut (1) 4-1/2" square
Fabric 3 (yellow)
* Cut (8) Template A
or Cut (8) 2-1/2" squares
Fabric 4 (light)
* Cut (4) Template B
or Cut (2) 4-7/8" squares and cut each twice diagonally into (4) HST.

1. Sew a four-patch with the Template A Fabric 2 and Fabric 3 patches. Make 4.
2. Sew the HST Template B Fabric 1 and Fabric 4 together. Make 4. Press to darker fabric.
3. Sew the (4) four-patch, (4) HST units, and Template C square together. Press towards the four patches and the center square.
Finished block.
Can't get much easier than that! I love the play of the fussy cut pieces and the background fabric. Creates a very interesting effect.

Here is the link to the templates.

Thanks for another state block, and 'Yes!' I will resume the state block quilt shortly, planning to add this one to the mix. Fussy cutting makes such a difference. I like your
positioning of curlicues in the corners.
