Then cut, for each pieced vertical row you will have, one square
that is 11/4" larger than the FINISHED size of your colored
squares, so for this pattern a cut 51/4" square. Cut this in
half on both diagonals to make quarter square triangles for the top
and bottom corners of each pieced strip. Also for each colored
square that is NOT the top and bottom square of a vertical
row, you will need one square that is 7/8" larger than
the FINISHED size of your colored squares, so for this pattern cut
47/8" squares. Cut these in half once on the diagonal to make
half square triangles. For the bottom block in any row, not shown
here, you will have quarter square triangles on two adjacent sides
and a half square triangle on the right (See "block" above
and look at the bottom pieced square!)...
