STATE BOCK CHALLENGE Indiana Block 2

This block is another block that is not that difficult. It only took me a couple hours from start to finish.
Here is how the block looks without the fabrics.

After completing the block, I was not happy with how the corner blocks looked so I decided to take the corners apart and resew them. I would love to hear what you think of each of the finished blocks. Which one do you like the best?
