Scrap Therapy--Charming Buds Quilt

Last night I went down to my local quilt store, Nancy's Calico Patch for a Quilt Therapy Session/Class. We're working on the Scrap Therapy's Charming Buds quilt. A month or more ago I went for a cutting session where we cut our scraps into squares. Here are some of my squares.

Last night we cut these squares in half diagonally and got these:

Next we cut strips and got a stack of these:

We sewed the triangles and the strips getting a bunch of these:
Then with right sides together matching points of the triangles and sewed the unsewn (is that a word?) sides of the strips together and got these:
Next we are to square these units, trimming off the extra.
During the next two weeks we are to make more units, squaring the units. Cut our sashing, sew together the various rows.
In two weeks we meet again and will sew squares to sashing until we get our quilt top. And we are to cut and add the borders with mitering the corners.
