This is the first time I've used this type of pattern; you trace the cutting lines on your freezer paper and then iron it onto a pair of layer cake pieces and then cut on the lines. You sew pieces together in the order in the pattern and there's only two places you need to worry about matching. They need to be trimmed down, but I'll do that all at the end.
Definitely manageable for a girl in grad school who is taking her comprehensive exam in 32 days.
32 DAYS? I try to remind myself that its still March, and my exam is in April. I'll freak out April 1st.
Anyways, my layer cake had 42 pieces and so I will get 42 blocks that end up around 7.5 inches square.
Good luck starting your new weeks!
