Mary says:  For the block “A House Divided” you may want to be sure to press all of your fabrics with some Best Press before cutting out your pieces as you will be handling some bias edges.
When sewing the final seam of the block that brings the two halves together, start sewing on a scrap of fabric to prevent the points of the triangles from being sucked down into you machine’s throat plate. Press that final seam open so your block lies nice and flat.

Kathy C says:  If using directional fabric, make sure opposing triangles are situated with pattern running in the same direction.
