Hot Crossed 9 Patch block

Today, actually I lie, it was late last night, I re-discovered the Block Lotto Blog and found a link to the above block by Sophie.  Of course I couldn't just make the block as per the instructions, I had to try it with 5" squares and the result is a 17" block.  The outer strips on my version of the block are 2" and the black strips that make the cross part are 1 & 1/2" wide.  I had fun making it, and it was really quick and easy (and for those who are new to patchworking, the tutorial tells you which way to press the seams - which is always really helpful I reckon) so thanks Sophie for sharing the block instructions.
