    Termi, it's kind of like follow the picture! ... In the book the assembly of each block is shown. The closer together sections are the first ones you stitch together. Then the next closest and so on ... til the final wide ones are sewn to complete the block. Good Luck!

    Thank you, Jeanie. I was having a Senior Blonde Moment I guess LOL. I also started quilting in the 70's and some books even used a 5/8" seam allowance.
    I have another question: where are the rotary cutting instructions? The little icon at the bottom of the page shows a rotary cutter but I didn't see the instructions ( or is this another SBM??) Thanks!!

    In the folder from the disk, is the section number 1: getting the most from this disk. Open up that and it has directions. And rotariy inststructions. Assembly of the blocks are listed in the book, I think, it starts on 278 of the pony book. Rotary instructions begin at vi to vii. Very well done book & instructions in the pony book.

    QNS, thank you. I printed the pages out for the rotary cutting. Today was a day full of Senior Blonde Moments for me--oh, it is Friday the 13th!

    Glad it all worked out for you, JanRN. I was a blonde when I was small; turned blonde again on the desert in Southwestern Texas with the help of my hairdresser for a short while. Now it is just senior moments that make me blank out.

    QNS - if you need to make your photos smaller I found that with Picasa (a free google program) you can export your file in a smaller size. That is what I have been using.
