Civil War Quilt Block Eight—Cotton Boll

And on to number eight, Cotton Boll, in honor of that all-important Southern product, cotton, which is also, of course, what this quilt is made from.

At first I thought this block kind of boring—it's pretty simple, after all. But after looking at all the wonderful pictures on the Flickr group, I thought I'd try to fancy it up by fussy cutting it:

And so I really, really, like it now. It is, in fact, one of my favorites so far, simplicity or no. And it's giving me all kinds of wonderful ideas about what else I might be able to do with these blocks.
