Peary's Expedition quilt block

Peary's Expedition
May 12, 1933-The Peary's Expedition block commemorates Admiral Peary discovering the North Pole in 1909.  "The four point star, representing the points of the compass, is set on a field of blue, which is the sky" explained Nancy Cabot in her Chicago Tribune column eighty years ago.

This is another of those blocks that I can find no information on.  Maybe it has another name?

It can however be found in Electric Quilt's BlockBase  program as #3901 and is attributed only to Nancy Cabot.  BlockBase shows it with the center being appliqued and the corners being pieced. You can get a copy of a 6" version here if you want to make the block.
