Empire Star Block and Part 2 of Christmas SAL

The fourth block of the Benjamin Franklin Mystery Quilt is the Empire Star block.  http://erikhomemade.typepad.com/erik_homemade/benjamin-franklin-mystery-quilt/
It is a good looking block and I'm happy to be up to date on this qal. 
The third block is the Fly Foot block which I posted about here http://needlethreadhappiness.blogspot.com/2012/08/fly-foot-block.html
That block was bothering me because of its brutal associations so today I took it apart and rearranged it so it looks like this now:
I love the other blocks and the fabric I'm using in this quilt and knew I couldn't let it go.  I know, I'm too sensitive.   
I also completed the second part of the Christmas SAL with Carole of Point de Croix Novalee 02  http://novalee02.over-blog.com/
Love this project, too.
Hope you are all well.
God Bless You.

Joanna, your blocks are wonderful! Well done!

I can understand why you changed your block layout other than the original on Fly Boy. I always think of the same thing as you when I see the design.
