** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block ** 

Using the square template provided, cut thirteen tan squares from the Tan Print 1  4-1/4" x 15" strip.( NOTE-You can use all different tans if you prefer!- use the same template and cut from 2" squares) Also cut twelve different colored squares using the same template...

From each of the Light Calico (shirting prints are great!)  3-1/2" x 10" strips cut two triangles using the triangle template provided. (Or you could cut four the same by cutting one 6-1/4" square in half on both diagonals to make four quarter square triangles, if you prefer)  Use the same template to cut four different colored Dark Calico triangles...

Next, using scant 1/4" seams sew five rows as shown at left, alternating colored squares and tan squares. Join the rows to complete the block's center unit...

Sew pairs of Light and Dark Calico triangles together. You need four of these...on to Page 2!
