Now, to make the rectangle units, place a Color
2 square right sides together atop a Color 1 6-1/2"
rectangle, with outer edges aligned, as shown in the top enlargement
at left. On the back of the top square lightly mark the diagonal. Sew
on this diagonal marking. Cut off the excess seam allowance. Press the
remainder towards the corner. Repeat this with another Color 1 square
on the other end of the rectangle, marking and then sewing in the same
direction as before. Make four units like this.
Make four more units, again using the
longer Color 1 rectangles and Color 2 square but this time with your
sewing done on the opposite diagonals, and shown in the second
enlargement at left.
Then in the same manner, and using the
SHORTER Color 1 and Color 2 rectangles and squares make four each of
the three shorter rectangle units shown at left...on to Page
