Sandy, thanks for your timely reply.  You're right I did the same thing and only made one of each.  I'm going to finish step 4 and five in each of my 5 groups and then go back to finish those off.  Thanks again!  Have a great weekend!

Basically, does it matter which background square gets sewn on first? The right or the bottom?

Instructions say to sew right first, then bottom, but your photos look like the bottom one was sewn first, then the right.

Thanks!

How many completed corner pieces should we have of fabric C and fabric B?  I am the confused one here.    :)

Sandy,  in step 4  do you HAVE to sew the bottom  background piece first ? All my b's and c's are directional so I had fun just getting those right. If I have to change them at least half of them are right.

Sandy the directions say put the background on the right first, then underneath but the picture looks like you did it the other way round.  Will it matter?  My gut is no, because I have an idea about what we will be doing with these units, but please advise because you have already fooled me a couple of times!  Thanks.

I have the same question as to does it matter if you sew the right background and then the bottom in step 4?

Thanks Bunches

Doesn't make any difference.  I think I may have done mine both ways!

You should have four of each.  Be sure to follow the  printed illustrations if you have a directional fabric.

It does not matter which background piece you sew on first.  Just be sure to make 2 lefts and 2 rights if you are using directional fabrics.  (see the illustrations for directional fabrics)

Thank You Sandy,  I was going by the instructions, then the pictures were opposite. I was VERY careful to have them left and right with my directional fabrics, which they all were. Sooooooo glad  I'm done  and no frogging.

I am SO glad this step is done! The directional fabric really made me think *OUCH*! This step took me the longest. Happy to be caught up.

Going to check my fabrics again....not sure I did them right after all that thought!

Sandy or anyone else!!!

Reading the step 4 directions I said yay! no directional fabric... and then group 1, what did  I find?  Can you look at the picture and see if I did it right?  Mine are diagonal so different from instructions.

Thanks anyone that can help, I don't want to continue if I am doing it wrong, but Sun. is really my only day to quilt.

It looks right to me.  You have the background fabric where my background is and your strips look like mine do. (of course I don't have your fabric, just the same pattern in the way the material is placed. ;-) )  Keep up the great work!

Nancy, I think you'll be ok.  The way these pieces go together it would be hard to get diagonals to go all the same way.  Your background fabric has a lot of movement so that will draw your eye away from the diagonal fabrics.
