I just taught this class at my LQS.
First - all of the books instructions are correct. I taught my class to put a post it note or flag on the page of your choice of colors for your quilt. This will help lessen any confusion. The strip counts are right. Just make sure you are on the right page each time.
Second - accuracy is very important. Cutting as well as sewing. Sew a test strip and check the accuracy of your 1/4 inch seam.
Third - you will have a blunted top on your triangles, this is right and aids in assembling the block. Invisagrip is very handy so your ruler doesn't slip as you are cutting.
I gave each class member a ziplock bag to keep their scraps in, the scraps are your bonus quilts and this is a way not to accidently throw them out.
All of the instructions are accurate and pressing works to make it a very easy quilt to make.
Take your time and you will have a beautiful quilt.
