A-8 Florence Nightingale

A-8 Florence Nightingale
This is my second attempt at this block. And it's so easy too! The first time I accidentally trimmed the block at a 45 degree angle, so the "X" looked more like a cross. In any case, it is a very easy paper pieced pattern, so it was redone quickly. The fabric is one of the first fat quarters I bought, and the information from the selvedge is Windham Fabric presents Feedsack II Circa 1930 Pattern No. 22417.

When I showed the block to Chris last night, he said "It looks like the flowers have a bandage on them." How perfect, since it is the Florence Nightingale block.
