Block 1 is ready for you. Click the QAL on the menu at the top of the page to get to the QAL page.
Block 1 is a simple block, but color placement is the secret. You can use the dark-medium-light scheme in the instructions or you can mix it up. Any color wheel scheme will work. My suggestion is that your light not be too light and your dark not too dark. Since this block is made up of half square triangles, try turning the colors so they are the opposite and see how that looks. Play around with it.
Tips: Press seams open and use pins to match seams before sewing. I use a pin straight into both seams at the quarter inch mark to align the seams and then holding the aligned seams carefully, pin at an angle across and then remove the alignment pin. That works well for me and keeps me from sewing across pins and possibly hitting one with my needle.
