Grandmother's Choice BOW 10 - New York

How appropriate that the block this week is New York, although it was not picked because of Sandy, but rather to commemorate Susan B. Anthony voting in New York on the first Tuesday in November in New York in 1872. It was also the last time she would vote, not living to see the 19th amendment passed into law.
Still using "Morris and Company", tricky to get flag colors. The corner star was fussy cut using the large floral, white flowers for the star, a blue background for the field.

I think I am going to make that star block for the upper left too. Your block really turned out well.

Thanks, it was in the unmodified BlockBase block that Barbara noted in her blog. Since I didn't have any starry fabric, decided to go this way.
