Notes on progress - it so easy to place when you have the outline available. Label each piece as to where it belong - up, down, right, left on the shiny side cuz that's the side you will see. Using freezer paper for the templates lets me lightly iron onto the front of the fabric and easily cut out the seam allowance. Also it's way easier to do a few pieces at a time than try to manipulate around all the pieces as I did with the first block.
