Starry Bright Sky QAL - Textured Four-Patches - Windmill Cathedral Window Month 2

Here is the second of the textured blocks for the Starry Bright Sky QAL!

My hints:  I found using a walking foot really helped put this block together.  When joining the folded triangles: instead of leaving the needle down and turning the fabric, it worked better for me to run the needle off the fabric then pull the fabric off and to start a new line.  I joined the four patch together then used the machine to stitch the fabric down.  I did all the stitching (so far) in one pass so stitching goes over the intersection of the four patches. To be consistent I will probably go back and add stitching so all the folds are secured (but I may do this when there is batting behind the block).

You can start to see how the blocks look together since I have finished four (of the six released) now.
