    Here is the easiest way to make those first HST's for the black and white; our Orca assignment for the week.

    Let's see, can I attach a photo? It is more difficult than in the past, but I can't learn without trying.

    step 1: 3 1/4" square. Sew diagonal, 1/4 " away from center mark
    step 2: Cut between sewing, diagonal
    step3: Cut THAT triangle into half, across the sewing line
    step 4: open up, press,
    step 5: sew those cute little pieces into a block, which will be 2" square finished size.

    Mine look exactly like yours except I start with 3.5 inch squares and don't cut the hst until I sew them together for the qst.

    I mark the center line then sew 1/4" on either side and then cut. Also when I do them will probably use 3 1/2" squares.

    I started with 3 1/2" squares and had to trim so much off I changed to the 3 1/4" squares. Everyone has to find what works well for them. Enjoy the process.

    I am not sure how many I can make, but these two colors are neutrals and browns. I love Black, but I just didn't have any.
