I just saw the Connecticut Yankee block. I like the positive negative effect and the possibilities for a scrap quilt. While the block can be pieced traditionally with templates, I thought you might like a foundation paper pieced version. Click on the block to get the bmp sized for a 6.5 inch block, then right click and save. Using 4, you will have a 12.5 inch block. Or use the 4.5 inch block below for a 8.5 inch block.
