I did enough of Step #2 to get one and only one block done. Here it is!
Once we add the sashing, it is going to get really busy (as if it wasn’t already).
P. S. You didn't look really close did you? I cheated by doing step #2 as half square triangles. I am still debating if I'll do the rest of them that way or go back to the original instructions. We'll see.
