Nancy P :
Can you look at the picture and see if I did it right?  Mine are diagonal so different from instructions.

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.

Sandy, Mimi and Leslie,

Thanks for the help, I was able to complete several more groups yesterday, and hopefully the rest before Fri!.  Can't wait to see what it all looks like!

ouch, i made the same mistake. I did not make two sets of each in step 3. I don't know how I missed it, and I had a miss cut too, so I am going to be short of fabric. Not sure what to do. I guess I could piece some scrapes together and make a rectangle out of them, or make it extra scrappy with a companion fabric? I think I need to stop working  on this late at night so I can pay more attention. Any ideas?

Sandy,

When I sew the 2nd background to the two-patch, the horizontal seam ends up in front where the 3 squares meet.  But your sample for step 4 shows the vertical seam in front.  Does it matter?

Does not matter which side you add first.

You said it just right!! Maybe the picture should be re-done to match the instruction, would help the beginners.
