** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **

Start by cutting your Color 1  3" x 6" strip into two 3" squares, then stack and bisect these diagonally...

Next cut the Color 1  3-1/2" x 14" strip into four 3-1/2" squares...

 

Next cut the Color 3   3-7/8" x 7-3/4" strip into two 3-7/8" squares, and stack then bisect them on the diagonal...

 

Now cut the Color 3   2" x 24" strip into twelve 2" squares, and then the Color 2   2" x 8" strip into four 2" squares...

To make the center unit, Sew a Color 1 triangle to the top side of your Color 3  3-1/2" square, right sides together , and using a scant 1/4" seam. Press seam allowances towards triangle, then sew another triangle on the opposite corner. Then sew one on each of the two remaining sides , pressing the last two seam allowances towards the center...

Then, to that unit we just made, sew a Color 3 triangle on each corner, again altering pressing directions with each addition...on to Page 2!
