I have struggled with angled lines before. The way you showed how to audition the fabric prior to flipping to sew was wonderful. Thank you.

The designing part is fun. Tips about shadowing colors behind lighter fabric was nice, as well as a quick large basting stitch to hold larger outside pieces in place. I would recommend an add a quarter ruler for trimming up, however, because I used to use a ruler and accidentally trimmed internal pieces even with the paper fold and ruined my block.
