This is a scan of the block I pieced to test my instructions. I have resized it to fit on the webpage. There are no seams that need to meet. This makes the block quite easy and fast to piece.

Sewing a 1/4" seam is extremely important when piecing blocks. Learn where the guideline for the 1/4" seam is on your sewing machine is. If there is none, make one with tape. Some sewing machines have an adjustable needle position. Use this to help sew your 1/4" seam. Measure your units after you piece and press to make sure they are the right size.

All seams are pressed toward the outer edge of the block. I have scanned the back of the block to demonstrate this. Click here to see the back of the block
