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.
