...a really simple but very pretty block!! You can combine this one in many pleasing ways!

** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **




Stack the Color 1 and Color 2  4-7/8" x 14-5/8" strips right sides together. Lightly mark 4-7/8" intervals on the back of the top strip. Using a rotary cutter cut them into three 4-7/8" squares...



Next, stack these squares, and having lightly marked a diagonal line on the back of one, use the rotary cutter to cut them on the diagonal, being careful not to stretch the fabrics!...



 First, stack then sew one Color 1 triangle with one Color 2 triangle , using a scant 1/4" seam, again being careful NOT to stretch fabrics as you sew! Press seam allowances towards darker fabric. Make six of these. Trim to measure 4-1/2" if needed...


Sew together your squares as shown at left. Press seams in opposite directions by row. Join the rows to complete your block! ...on to Page 2!
