** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block ** 

Using the templates provided, from Color 1 cut one square and eight trapezoids, four in each direction...

From Color 2 cut four squares, four rectangles, and eight triangles...

Sew pairs of trapezoids together using a 1/4" seam, and stopping at a point 1/4" away from the inside V seam end, shown here in green. Backstitch. Sew Color 2 triangles to the sides of the trap pair, as shown 2nd from far left. Press seams towards triangles. Now sew a Color 2 square to one edge of the inner V, stopping at a point 1/4" from the inner edge. Backstitch. Fold the unit right sides together, lining up the remaining un-sewn edges. Stitch from the 1/4" point to the edge of the seam, backstitching at the beginning of the seam to secure it. Make four corner units like this...on to Page 2!
