Here is a tute I made for PP. I show how to use one of the foundations for templates.

1. Make sure ALL of the fabric is right side up, when cutting multiple pieces. (or they will be mirror imaged and useless)

2. When you cut out the foundation pieces for templates, the unprinted side of the template lays face up, on top of the right side of the fabric. (or they will be mirror imaged and useless)

3. Cut each piece with a 3/8" - 1/2" seam allowance

4. Chain piece your blocks. It is less confusing to sew all of one piece on, than to bounce back and forth
Pin the first few pieces to sewing side, on the sew lines to make sure you are lining them up correctly, then leave one of those out as a guide to how you need to lay the fabric on the next ones
