I took some cues from earlier posters in making my block. I made it with the flying geese on the outside and square on square for the center. I agree that it's good to minimize the number of seams to make pressing easier. I also made the center light, like some others had, instead of dark because I thought my dark was just too depressing to play such a big role in the block. I'm so glad we can use this blog to share our ideas and results.
