Squares, rectangles and tri-rectangles ready to go. Folding the fabric in half before cutting gave me the reversed triangle at the same time. It's so nice to have these things mentioned in the directions in case I hadn't thought of it before pushing the rotary cutter through my limited fabric :).
The Recs Tool includes a notched edge at the top of the triangle for lining up the offset pieces when placed right sides together. I'm looking forward to that extra help at assembly time.
It was a puzzle to cut the brown striped fabric and get all the tri-recs pieces in their proper spots in matched pairs--I just couldn't let the stripes go willy-nilly. Though the background fabric is a bit light compared to the tan blocks, I like the contrast with the brown. So, pressing onward to construction!
