Dear Jane C-4, Tic Tac Toe

Once I get back to working on Dear Jane I do not want to stop.  This is the small center section of C-4, Tic Tac Toe.  I have not yet decided how to complete construction.  There is a little more obvious paper-piecing to accomplish: the top and bottom white edges, and the triangles that put the center on point.  After that, construction gets a bit trickier.

Dear Jane C-4 - Tic Tac Toe
Should I do as recommended in thatquilt and paper-piece the whole block?  Should I suck it up and deal with the inset seams like Jane Stickle did?  Or perhaps I should paper-piece what I can, then applique the whole thing onto a white muslin ground.  I will have to see which method appeals to me when I get around to actually doing it.  

The subtle green variations in this hand-dyed fabric are fun to work with.  It has an atmospheric quality that is very interesting.  The original fabric is rainbow hued, and there is not very much green left in the remaining scrap.  I will have to plan carefully, or this block will end up with purple corners.

sounds very complicated to me but I am sure you will complete it in a blink of an eye, you blocks are coming along so well
