    I looked at it like it was a paper-pieced pattern and here's my best shot. [#] corresponds to the numbers on the template pieces

    1) Sew two [1] together (or fold fabric before cutting)
    2) Sew [2] to each side of the [1] unit
    3) Sew two [3] together (or fold fabric before cutting)
    4) Sew [3] on each side of [1/2] unit
    5) Sew [8] on each of [6]
    6) Sew [5] on left side of [6/8] unit
    7) Sew [4] on right side of [6/9/5] unit
    8) Sew [2] to [7]
    9) Sew [6/8/5/4] unit to each side of [2/7] unit
    10) Sew [6/8/5/4/2/7] unit to each side of [1/2/3] unit

    Or you could enlarge the tempate diagram and treat itlike a paper piecing pattern.

    I think it's gorgeous. I may just have to try it. Thanks.

    Thanks, everyone. The numbers in the diagram, I think, are for identification purposes for cutting. I was looking for the detail that Bluphrog and dungeonquilter provided. Very special thanks to both of you. I had emailed the website, but the response I got was that they just provide the template, not instructions for constructing the block.

    Wow, that's one beautiful block. I love her stuff. I wouldn't know where to start with that one.

    I found it. Click on the website (first one you sent us). Then click on free patterns. The pattern you showed (if it is the first picture) is in Advanced and called Deveonshire. Let me know if you still need something :-).

    Sew two 8's to each 6 and add a 5 and 4 to two of them. Unit 3 with the 4 & 5. Unit 4 without.
    Now join unit 1 to unit 3 and unit 4 twice
    You will have two seams with kinks in them to add unit 2 between these two pieces.
    I'd do it from the outside in... LOL.

    If I were making this (and I might someday), I would start by piecing the 6 & 8 triangles together, making 4 of them,

    then putting on the "border" for them (the 4 & 5)

    Then I would make the two 3 & 2 triangles

    Attach the large 4,5,6,8 triangles to the 3& 2 triangles.

    Make the 7, 2,1 wedge and then attach the other 2 sides.

    Yes, you will have to deal with a very wide Y-join in 4 places, but it's doable.

    Or I would foundation piece the entire thing.

    VERY GOOD INSTRUCTIONS......Take these and apply it to the diagram in the upper left hand corner of the pattern pieces.
