Difficulty of block: moderate easy
Number of pieces: 36
Method used: hand piecing, hand applique

It is hard to say for sure, from the photo of the original block, if Eaton's Crossroads was all pieced, but I kind of think it was.  I'm pretty sure I can see seam lines at the corners of the center square.  Anyway, I decided to piece together the circle, and then applique it to the square.  The only problem with this is having to deal with seam bulk when turning under to applique.  I thinned it out some and all in all it didn't turn out too bad.  Reverse applique would be another option for the center circle.

I love the orange in this! When I first looked at this, it brought to mind a jack-o-lantern. Clearly, I am ready for fall! :)
