Next speed piece the half squares, by stacking the Color 3 and Color 7
2-3/8" x 9-1/2" strips, right sides together and all edges
aligned. On the back of the top strip, lightly mark the 2-3/8"
square lines and mark the diagonals in the direction shown at left.
Now sew 1/4" above and below the marked diagonals,
pivoting at the square lines. Now cut apart ON the marked diagonals,
and on the 2-3/8" square lines. This will give you eight half
squares. Press seam allowances towards the darker fabric. These should measure 2". Repeat this with a Color 5 and
Color 7 strip set to get eight more half squares in that color
