A Last Finish For 2016

I saw this block on Facebook where nearly everyone was making it.  I'm not sure but I thought I saw where it was called Arkansas Crossroads.  If you know it by another name please let me know.  I knew I could make it without a pattern and I had all these 2 1/2" squares already cut so I started in making a four-by-four grid of 16 blocks, then added the points in the middles.  The bottom photo shows the backing fabric, which I turned over the edges to bind the quilt.  None of them on Facebook had sashing so I had to make mine different.  I love this quilt and the pictures truly don't do it justice.  I am keeping this one for myself.
