To make the second unit, sew a Color 2 square to the left end of a Color 1 rectangle in the same way as in the previous step. Then sew another Color 2 square to the right end, sewing in the same direction this time. Make four of these...

Then piece the block by first sewing together four pairs of unit1/ unit 2 combos and then joining the new units. Be sure to alternate pressing directions as you go!

I show a couple of layout choices here, the first, with blocks just added on straight, the second, with alternate blocks made with reversed units, that is, with the four 2 unit squares sewn together in a different arrangement... :o) 

Happy Quilting!!
