This makes a 15" Block!

** Preparing the Pieces **

 

 

First, lightly mark on the wrong side, your  3-1/2"strips, into 3-1/2"squares. Cut using a rotary cutter....

 

Next, mark and cut your 3-7/8" strips into 3-7/8" squares...TWO of Color 1,  SIX of Color 2 and FIVE of Color 3. Cut each of these in half once on the diagonal to make half square triangles...

 

 

Join the Color 2 and Color 3 triangles, using scant 1/4" seams, pressing the seam allowances towards your darker fabric. Make nine of these half squares. Then make three more half squares using Colors 1 and 2. Trim these to measure 3-1/2" if needed...
