Stack the Color 1 and Color 3 2-7/8" x 8-5/8" strips right
sides together and all edges aligned. Mark the 2-7/8" square
lines, then draw in the diagonals as shown at top left. Next sew 1/4" on each side of the drawn diagonal lines, pivoting at
the square lines. Cut apart on the square lines and on the drawn
diagonals between the rows of stitching. This will give you six half
squares. Press seams to darker side. These should measure 2-1/2". Repeat this procedure with a Color 2 and Color 3
2-7/8" x 17-1/4" strip set to get twelve half square in that
color arrangement. Trim those to 2-1/2" also, if needed...
