Maybe I'm not looking the the right place. Where are the block patterns? I really want to do all the homework as the doing is what will instill it in my brain. I don't have a computer quilt program and guess I'll use the blocks for a charity quilt anyway. Really like this course material so far. So informative and beyond the basics of color.

Glad you are enjoying the lessons! And thanks to Rita and Lois for clarifying the location of the exercise pdfs. And as Rita pointed out, the exercises are all "mock blocks," strictly cut and paste. If you want to sew the King's Crown block, here are the cutting directions. Keep in mind that the pdf exercise block is 8 inches square, to make it easily fit on standard-size paper. I like to sew the blocks at 9 inches square. All seam allowances are 1/4 inch. (Margo, will you please check me on the following? You have an eagle eye!)

From the center fabric, cut:

1 square, 5" x 5"

From the large triangle fabric, cut:

1 square, 5 3/4" x 5 3/4". Cut the square twice diagonally to make 4 quarter-square triangles. There will be lots of bias edges, so be careful.

From the background fabric, cut:

4 squares, each 3 1/8" x 3 1/8". Cut each square once diagonally to make a total of 8 background triangles.

From the corner fabric, cut:

4 squares, each 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" to make 4 corner squares.

You can use the quick Flying Geese method for the large triangle and background triangle units, though it takes more fabric. Just google "Quick Flying Geese Units" to find a number of tutorials.

Hope that helps. I love making these blocks.
