( This diagram is NOT to scale, so keep that in mind if you try printing it.  The raw block will be 10×10″, so you won’t be able to print a ‘to scale’ pattern.)

At first glance, this block might seem a little bit intimidating, but give it a chance!  It’s tons of fun and hopefully this tutorial will make you feel like you can handle it!
