like how it looks but construction (at least for me) looks scary hard!! 

it is pretty dramatic, isn't it.

actually not too difficult.  They way Missouri star does it is very easy - here's the video if you are interested.

I did mine a little differently.  make 5 hst.  then make two 4 patches, each with two HST and one dark & one light 2.5" square.  Up to that point same as MSQC.  But then rather than doing strips, I sewed each of the 4 patches to the short end of a 6.5 x 4.5 rectangle (one each  dark & light).  then sew a 2.5 x 4.5 dark rectangle and light rectangle  on either side of the remaining HST.  Sandwhich that piece between those two light & dark sub-blocks, sort of like sashing.  viola, a complicated block that isn't.  Biggest difficulty is to get the hst's going the right way.

I spent ALL day making 2 book panels into a backing for a charity quilt and the other into a cloth book for my sons preschool collection.  It always surprises me when things take so long!

here is the front and backing….



and the book!
