I chose to use a paper piece to make my half square triangles for step 3 in Orca Bay. I tried to do it with the ruler but they just were not coming out good and it was taking forever. It took me a couple of hours to stitch all of the needed squares and I cut them all apart while watching tv.
I still have ironing to do and to peel off the paper backing, but it is going rather quickly. I will be starting on step 4, red string blocks today or tomorrow!
