Time to Use Up Some Scraps!!
This block uses DARK scraps at least 4-7/8" square, and
2-7/8" square, and LIGHT scraps at least 2-1/2" square and
2-7/8" square.

From two dark 4-7/8" squares cut half square triangles. You need
two different colored triangles of this size. From four dark
2-7/8" squares cut half square triangles. You need four different
colored triangles of this size...( You'll save the other triangles cut
for other blocks!)

Now cut six light 2-1/2" squares. From eight light 2-7/8"
squares cut half square triangles. You need eight different colored
triangles of this size...

Sew pairs of light and dark 2-7/8" half square triangles together
in a scant 1/4" seam. Press seams to dark sides. Trim to measure
2-1/2" if needed. You need four of these half squares in total...

Now sew two units from those smaller half squares and 2-1/2"
light squares...

Sew two of the remaining light half square triangles to the top and
bottom of a 2-1/2" light square. Add a larger dark half square
triangles. Press seam to dark side. Make two units like this...on to Page
