She says the block is "designed to picture the result of Henry Clay's attempt to obtain judicious legislation for both the north and the south on the slavery problem of the 1800's."
The compromise Clay introduced encountered alot of opposition and had so many amendments that "the final settlement was a hodgepodge" thus the look of the block!
Quite a different block from Clay's Choice that was introduced just a week ago.

To make this block, I added a couple of seams to divide it into four paper pieced sections for ease of construction. I didn't want to have to make templates or sew any Y-seams. Can you see the change? You can download my pattern here.
