I decided to start from the inside to outside assembly. I also did not cut squares and draw lines on the diagonal. I find that I cannot reliably sew 1/4" on either side of a diagonal line. I end up with lots of trimming. Using what I learned from Bonnie Hunter, I use the EZ Angle ruler, strips 1/2" wider than the finished size, and cut the triangles. I can line up the cut edge against my sewing guide and get the seams I need. I did not have to trim up any of the triangles, they were all perfect sewn this way.
