Scrap Quilt Tutorial Using 2 inch squares with 3 inch Squares

Sew a 4 patch using a 2 inch square
Trim to a 3 inch square
Sew to a 3 inch square ( repeat the process )
Sew the 3 inch 4 patch, and the 3 inch square  into another 4 patch block
Trim block to 5 inch

Repeat the process 3 more times

Sashing is 1.5 by 5
Center square is 1.5 by 1.5

Lay the 4 blocks in the order you want.
Attach the 1.5w x 5 length inch strip to the top left block (block 1) I know in Geometry you are supposed to say Length x Width, but I don't know if it applies to sewing as well.

sew the bottom sashing strip to the 1.5 square
Sew the bottom sashing strip to the 1st block (top left)

Sew the bottom sashing strip onto the bottom of the second block

Sew the sashing strip to the 3rd block (bottom left)

Sew block 1 and 2 together (Top Left and Right Blocks)
Sew Block 3 & 4 together ( Bottom Left and Right Blocks)

Right block is laying on top of left block. (top and bottom blocks shown in picture) (sew on right side)

Sew top and bottom half together

Final Block

My progress so far.
I hope the tutorial wasn't too confusing.
