All the strips are sewn on both long sides of the WOF strips (a tube), a solid paired right sides together with the print. I had my mom, the zippy straight seam sewer, do that. The longer part is to cut all the triangles from the strips with the special ruler. The triangles cut at 3" from the seam line and are all trimmed before they are opened and pressed. Taking me a long time.
After I trimmed 2 pairs, I cut the necessary solids and made the first big block. I had to use graph paper to make sure I did not mess up the placements. I did one corner a couple of times anyways. I do like the look of it, and now eight more to do. Got to get those triangles trimmed!
