My fist tip when preparing to piece quarter-square triangles and hourglass blocks is to make sure you mark your diagonal lines perpendicular to the sewn seam line of your untrimmed HST units. This may mean that the diagonal line does not run through one of the corners of the block. That is okay!
It is much more important to line up your ruler such that one of the lines overlaps the previously sewn seam line. This will make your QST and hourglass blocks much easier to trim when the time comes!
My second tip for Piecing #2 is to note that when you make QSTs and hourglass blocks, each set of blocks will be mirror images of one another, like in the photo above. That is correct!
As noted in the instructions, after piecing the QSTs and hourglass blocks, there will be a few of the untrimmed HSTs left over. My completed UNTRIMMED QSTs, HSTs, and hourglass blocks can be seen above.
