Craftsy BOM- February

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Block # 3, the Balkan Puzzle Piece, was a little of a challenge since the HSTs were cut on the bias... they didn't want to cooperate as they went under the presser foot while stitching. If you look closely you'll notice that my side rows are slightly off due to trimming down the block to 12.5", but for my first go, I'm happy with the block. Block #4, Chunky Chevron, is my favorite so far, the HSTs are cut on grain and were much easier to work with, I hardly trimmed at all to square up to 12.5".
