These are digital photos of the blocks I pieced to test my instructions. Since the blocks are larger this year and even less fits on my scanner, I thought this might be a better solution. I have resized them to fit on the webpage. Notice that the seams should meet where each row is joined to the next one. The points come together and are not cut off.

Sewing a 1/4" seams 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 or stick-on foam. 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.
