What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be careful when measuring to figure cutting after adding the 1/4" seam allowance. I found it helpful to highlight one of each shape once the draft was complete. If you discover mistakes as you create your block - update your draft to reflect corrections needed.

Thanks Pam. I still have a way to go with drafting. It took personal help from Laura for me to even get going.
