The overall design is unified by colour and the circular shapes in both the quilting and the border appliqué juxtapose the rectangles and squares of the main design.
You will need to keep close track of the pieces as you cut. I would suggest keeping a plastic sheet protector or baggie for each block. As you cut, put the appropriate piece in the bag. I have included the block number in the cutting instructions so you can keep the pieces together as you cut.
