** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **

Mark and cut the Color 1 strip into four 3-1/2" x 6-1/2" rectangles...

Then mark and cut the Color 3 strip into eight 3-1/2" squares...

Next, sew the Color 2 and Color 3   3-1/2" x 14" strips together along one long edge, with right sides together. Mark this unit at 3-1/2" intervals, and cut, using a rotary cutter...


Now place a Color 3 small square right sides together atop a Color 1 rectangle, with edges aligned. Mark the diagonal on the back of the Color 3 square. Sew on this marked line. Cut off the excess seam allowance, pressing the remainder towards the rectangle. Repeat with another square on the other end. Make four of these.




Sew each rectangle unit to a strip pieced unit along one long edge, using a scant 1/4" seam, pressing seam allowance towards the strip pieced unit... make four of these ... on to Page 2
