Next speed piece the half squares, by stacking
the Color 1 and Color 3 2-3/8" x 14-1/4" strips, right
sides together and all edges aligned. On the back of the top strip,
lightly mark the 2-3/8" square lines and mark the diagonals in
the direction shown at left. Now sew 1/4" above and
below the marked diagonals, pivoting at the square lines. Now cut
apart on the marked diagonals, and on the 2-3/8" square lines.
This will give you twelve half squares. Press seams towards the darker
fabric. These should measure 2" . Repeat this with
one more Col 1/Col 3 strip set to get twelve more...
