Now sew together pairs of Color 3 and Color 4 MEDIUM triangles to make four of the units shown at top left. Add another Color 4 MEDIUM triangle to the Color 3 side of each of those to make four of the units shown at middle left. Now add a Color 1 half square triangle to each of the units we just made, making four of the units shown at bottom left. I'll call these the Color 1 pieced units...

 Next sew one of the Color 2 pieced units we first made to each of the Color 1 pieced units we just made. Make four of these...

Now sew the Color 3  2-5/8" square to the bottom right edge of one of the larger pieced units, starting at a point 1/4" from the inner edge of the square and stitching to the outer edge...

Working clockwise, add another pieced unit to the bottom of that...

...Continue to add units in a clockwise fashion...

After adding the fourth unit, fold the block right sides together to align the remaining un-sewn seam, and stitch that closed....almost done!...on to Page 3!
