Sylvia sugests you watch Part 1 through before embarking on your project.

The completed blocks should be 12½ ins square when made to this stage – if they are slightly larger, or smaller this will be ok providing they are all the same size and you can trim if necessary - but beware of being too cavalier!

For this quilt a ¼ inch seam allowance is used throughout and you can sew by hand or machine.  Sylvia does mark up the sewing line on her pieces and this is a great help for those used to sewing metric and gives greater accuracy to others.

Sylvia guides you through the cutting and the piecing of the blocks in this first section;  and has some great advice about the grain of the triangles to keep your block square as well as pinning and sewing and pressing - for most of the seams she likes to press them open - (and you might like to learn about the strip stick to help you with this).

If you would like to learn a little bit about handpiecing then Valerie shows you in her workshop on the Tumbling Block patchwork. and the simple running stitch can be used in traditional patchwork too.

Here is a reminder of the fabric quantities:
