Now piece the block, by setting the side units into the center blade unit. To do this, starting at one edge, sew until you come to the edge of the center small square, turn the fabric slightly to line up that seam. Sew until the other edge of the small square then turn fabric slightly again to line up the remaining seam!

 Now I thought...what if I DIDN'T just do this in two colors...but instead stuck in a family of mixed colors all helter skelter? I rather like it this way! There is a consistent color used for the center small squares, and the blade triangles ...each blade is of one color...other than that, this is mix and match quilting!

Like it??

Happy Quilting!
