** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **

First mark and cut the Color 2  2 1/2" x 7 1/2" strip into three 2 1/2" squares. Then Mark and cut the Color 3  2 1/2" x 12 1/2" strip into five 2 1/2" squares. Then mark and cut the Color 5  2 1/2" x 20" strip into eight 2 1/2" squares...

 

 

Next cut the Color 4  4 7/8" square on the diagonal. You will only need one of the resultant triangles. Save the other one for a future project!!

 

 

Now cut the Color 5  2 7/8" square on the diagonal to make two half square triangles...

 

 

Lastly, mark and cut the Color 5  4 1/2" x 13" strip into two 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" rectangles ...and now...

 

 

Piece the top row of the block, by sewing together a Color 1 square, a Color 5 square, a Color 2 square, a Color 5 square, a Color 3 square and a Color 5 square, using all scant 1/4" seams, and pressing seams towards the darker fabrics...

 

Next make one of the six square units shown at left, and TWO of the two square units shown at left ...on to Page 2!
