** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **

 

Cut the Color 1 3-1/2" x 14"strip into four 3-1/2" squares...

 

 

Lay your trapezoidal template on the right side of the Color 2 fabric strip as shown, mark and cut with rotary cutter...

 

Repeat this for the Color 3 strip...** note that they are cut in reverse orientation...

 

On the seam line, lightly mark a point 1/4" in from one corner of the Color 1 squares. Mark 1/4" from inside miter of the Color 3 trapezoids as well, as shown. Match the top edges and the marked dots of the square and the trap, right sides together. Using a scant 1/4"seam sew from the outside edge to the marked point, and backstitch to secure this seam. Press seam towards center...
