    After reading through all the instructions and looking at the blocks posted I have 2 questions:
    #1 – To get the twisty type effect as shown in the possible layout picture do we have to make half our blocks twisting left and the other half twisting right..??
    #2 – Do we actually lose the points of the triangle twists..??

      If you follow the layout posted you will need 5 twisting right and 4 twisting left…you could also do 4 right and 5 left. When squaring up the blocks after sewing on your 4 triangles you will lose the points. The triangles are longer than the block to give you ease of squaring up. Hope this helps.

    My first square is done, it measures 13 x 12.75. I always seem to loose a little bit one way, Any suggestions? My 6.5 square was perfect. I did learn to spray starch my fat quarter before cutting and not just the strip.
