Any instructions with [brackets], refers you to the Technique Page in the Library of this site for the complete free how-tos.

~In quilting a 'strip' is the width of the fabric (WOF) cut from selvage to selvage. Two fat quarter (FQ) strips would equal one WOF strip.

~Be sure to print this web page instructions and the Fabric Key above for reference.

~Tone-on-tone fabrics without a print direction are suggested for Fabrics B to H.

~Make yourself a fabric guide with small bits of fabrics taped to a card:

~Pre-fold the lines and mark the unit number and fabric letters on the paper templates, using the fabric guide included with the template.

~Fold the triangle and square patches in half and pinch the fabric to help align the patches with these center marks.

~ Sew a test unit and then chain piece the remaining units.
