Block #48 - Crossed Canoes

Block Name: Crossed Canoes

Size: 6"

Technique: Paper Piecing

Today's block is a more traditional block. It is known by several names: Crossed Canoes, Santa Fe Quilt, Indian Canoes, The Dragon Fly, Twinkling Star, and Tippecanoe. It is paper pieced in four units, two in exact contrast to the other two.

You can print the pattern here: Crossed Canoes

It looks great in straight sets:

And even better when the blocks are rotated:
