General Notes for getting started:

Press your fabric and get out all those folds/wrinkles.

Square or trim your fabric so you have a straight edge to work with.

Remove selvages before you begin.

Test your 1/4″ seam for accuracy.

Carefully press as you go with a dry iron and avoid dragging your iron around on your pieced unit to keep from distorting any bias edges.

Ok!  Let’s get going!  Get your pattern and cut all your pieces.

For step 1 place two A squares right sides together and draw a diagonal line down center of your top square, we are making some half square triangles…

Sew down both sides of line using 1/4″ seam.

Next, for C/B blocks, place long edge of C piece on short edge of B piece.
