woohoo - I am taking my time on this one.
I took pictures of my process on the Jen Kingwell glitter block. Maybe it will help someone else.
There are several pieces to the block and I need to use the templates for marking at the machine. There are 5 pieces of the main fabric 4 pieces of the accent fabric and 4 pieces of background fabric. They need a press.
Since there are 2 seams for the center, I start with that seam. I line up the main fabric square and an accent square and sew the seam completely.
I can clip off the first patches from the back of the machine, and then I add the second accent square to the first squares to make a threesome.
Next I add the triangle to blade shaped piece on the far right I know I need a long straight line so that's how I remember how to place the triangle.
Here I have to add some other leader / ender piece, in this case the kite block, to keep the chain going.
I am off to make a pass on mill girls.
