|Here's where I'm at so far:|

I'm not as far along as Marjorie, but I, too, found a version I like better. In fact the more I studied the pattern for block 1, wondered if the maker had gotten the patten that already had the seam allowance added when she went to work on it. That block would look a lot different if my supposition is correct. However the one that caught my eye when I googled the name is this one at that quakerquilthistory.com site:
I then chose one quarter of the pattern to be my guide. Since this block was appliqued by someone, I evened out some of the parts to compensate for the vagarity in the shape. I then trim all the background off. I folded a 14" square of freezer paper into fourths and stapled my patten onto it.
