Oh, wow. I guess Craftsy has changed the way one edits their own projects, and whatever I wrote as instructions has disappeared. I really made this up as I went along. As I remember the "blocks" were just strips of 1" (finished) pieces, about 5" or 6" long. Each block section was set off from the next with same size piece laid in as sashing. Sorry, wish I could be more specific, but that stole is long gone from our possession and from my head!
