Then speed piece the half squares...by stacking
the Color 3 and Color 1...Color 2 and Color 3...and Color 2 and Color 1 3-7/8"
x 7-3/4" strips, right sides together and all edges aligned. On the backs of the top
strips, lightly mark off the 3-7/8" square lines, and then mark the diagonals in the
direction shown at left...Now sew 1/4" above the marked diagonals in one
continuous seam from the upper left corners to the upper right corners...pivoting at the 3-7/8" square lines...then turn the fabrics, and sew back 1/4" on the
other side of the marked diagonals...cut apart on the square lines, and on the marked
diagonals...this will give you four of each color combo of half squares....press seam
allowances towards the darker fabrics...
