Civil War Block 8 - Cotton Boll

Barbara talked about stripes, and I don't have many Civil War stripes, but I had this in my stack of fabrics, which is stripe-y, so I used it. In order to get stripes that do something I ended up with bias edges on the corners :(, oh well, I will be careful with it.
I used Marti Michell templates, cropping the 4" square to get the striped pieces. Should have lined things up better, but not redoing it.
Right now I think I will use log cabin blocks in the four corners, made with 1" strips.
