:05 Video opens with Marti piecing the center square and light colored "a" pieces together.
1:27 Clockwise or counter-clockwise, that is the question! The answer is clockwise, if you want your project to match our illustrations.
2:03 The second piece ("b") determines whether you are going clockwise or counter-clockwise.
3:01 An accurate 1/4-inch seam is a must! Both a 1/4-inch presser foot and Aurifil thread will help you get perfect 1/4-inch seams. Sew with the new piece ont he bottom and lead into the needle with the center square, and you will be going clockwise.
