Stack the Color 1, Color 2 and Color 3  5-1/4" squares. Using a rotary cutter, cut through all on the diagonal, then cut through the resultant triangles again on the other diagonal to make four quarter square triangles of each...

 

Now speed piece the Color 1/Color 2 half squares, by stacking one 4-7/8" square of each right sides together and all edges aligned. Mark the diagonal on the back of the top square, and sew a scant 1/4" above and below this marked line, then cut apart ON the marked line to give you two half squares. Press seam to darker side. Trim to measure 4-1/2" if needed...

 

 

Repeat the previous step using Colors 1 and 3, to make two half squares of this color combination... on to Page 2!
