This makes a 4" section! At left
I show sixteen of them, making a 16" block!

As is true with many many patterns, there are
at least
three versions called Indian Hatchet. This is the one I am most familiar with!

** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the
Block **

For each block of a quilt, you will need to follow this same procedure!
Place a calico small square, right sides together lined up with the top left of a Color 2
4-1/2" square. Mark the diagonal on the back of the small square, and sew on
this marked line. Repeat with another small calico square of the same color on the lower
right corner. Cut off the excess seam allowances and press the remainder towards the
center stripe...

Sew sixteen units together to make each 16" block needed, and
that's all there is to it!...on to Page 2!
