Thanks, I got it! Having a leader piece really helps alot. I was able to finish all 100 pieces really quickly.
The tutorial I am following has you cut the pieces and then sew them. As mentioned, I read about leaving them as squares, sewing and then cutting. I am going to try that next. It seems a bit easier. But then again, some of the things that I think are simple as pie turn out to be some of the most challenging things!
That is what I like about quilting (very much a newbie) it is a challenge and always keeps me thinking. What seems like a mindless craft to those who do not quilt is really a craft that requires many, many mental skills!
