Putting the actual blocks together is really super simple even though the finished design looks pretty complicated. You only have to flip four of your blocks after that it is just repeating the pairs over and over again.
As you can see we have 1 A and 1 B at the top and 2 A and 2 B. That's it! Easy right? All you have to do is sew 1 A to 1 B to make your first pair. You'll make one more pair and sew those two pairs together for row 1. Then you sew 2 A to 2 B to make your second pair. Make one more of those pairs and sew them together for row 2. You need to make 3 row 1 sets and 2 row 2 sets.
Now comes the hard part. Ok it's not that hard you need to sew on row 1 set to a row 2 set twice. This should use up all your row 2 sets. You now have 2 sets of 1 and 2 plus an extra row 1. Sew your sets together and then sew your extra row 1 on the bottom. That's it! You just completed your first quilt top. Next week we'll put a boarder on it and discuss how to quilt it.
