Next speed piece the half squares, by stacking the
Color 1 and Color 2 3-7/8" x 7-3/4" strips, right sides together
and all edges aligned. On the back of the top strip, lightly mark the
3-7/8" square line and mark the diagonals in the direction shown at left.
Now sew a scant 1/4" above and below the marked diagonals, pivoting at
the square line. Now cut apart on the marked diagonals, and on the 3-7/8"
square line. This will give you four half squares. Press seam allowances towards
the darker fabric. Trim these back to measure 3-1/2" if needed...
