Someone posted to this thread that they would like a tutorial in English. I thought I would give it a try.
When I stacked them, I placed them on my cutting board and used the lines to place them at 1/2" intervals.
I tried to place the top fold of the stack as close to the center of the background as possible.
Thanks QuiltnNan for the tip.
Start with 6" squares. Need 8 each of 7 fabrics
Fold in 1/2 and press
First you have to cut all strips to make four log cabig. All strips are 1- 1/2" wide and 44" long. The square is 3- 1/2" by 3- 1/2". Then you have to cut diagonaly through each large block.
Pieces a strip set of fabrics D though F. Cut two triangles to strips it. The triangle must not be inverted vertically.
Cut 8 triangules from each strip set.
Cut 8 pieces of backgroud fabric the BG template and sew the 8 triangles to each BG.

I don't wash charms, jelly rolls etc. When I am finished with a project I put Shout Color Catchers in the wash with it.
They work great!
If I think something is sure to bleed I will soak it in a basin first.
I'll wash all the reds together, even with a color catching sheet, the reds could still bleed enough to affect the other colors
I wash everything except charms, jelly rolls and precuts. I learned the hard way that they all shrink. I have tons of washed
