** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block ** 

Cut the Color 1  3-3/8" x 10-1/8" strip into three 3-3/8" squares. Stack these squares are cut them once on the diagonal to make six half square triangles. Cut the Color 2  3-3/8" square in half once on the diagonal to make two half square triangles...


Use the template provided to cut one center unit from the Color 2  8-3/4" square...


Now make two corner pieced triangle units. Sew a Color 1 and Color 2 half square triangle right sides together using a scant 1/4" seam. Press seam to darker side. Add another Color 1 triangle to the top, and to the right of this unit, pressing seams always to the dark. Make two units like this...on to Page 2!
