Cut on the diagonal as you did with Color 1, and then cut the triangles you get on the diagonal again, as shown...now...

To make the quarter squares, use a scant 1/4" seam to join together a Color 1 and Color 3 triangle. Press seam to the darker side. Do this with all of them to give you eight half- units. Sew the half units together to give you four quarter squares... 1/4" seams are used throughout the block making...

Then make two rows in this fashion; sew a 4-1/2" corner square to either side of a quarter square for rows 1 and 3 of the block...

For row two, sew a quarter square to opposing sides of the 4-1/2" Color 2 square...

To join rows, place row two atop row one, right sides together. Stitch in a 1/4 " seam. Press seam towards row one...

Lastly, add row three to the bottom of rows one and two.....and That's all there is to it!!...on to Page 3!
