There is a great history document that was provided with the block called Apple Pie Ridge Star.

I grabbed a pen and started reshaping the pattern.
This is worth stitching.
I had already prepped the background block.
So I finished the prep at lunch at work.
I've never flashed a hospital with quilt patterns before.
