We'll piece this one the old fashioned way, just to make sure we don't forget how :o)...and yes, that's an old fashioned rotary cutter... :o)  

This makes a 12" block!

Please abide by the Terms and Conditions of use! :o)

** Preparing the Pieces**



Lay the Color 2 strip atop the Color 1 strip, and with a rotary cutter cut these two together into ten 2-1/2" squares...


Using a 1/4" seam, sew these 2-1/2" squares together to make five four patch squares...



Stack the 4-7/8' squares and using the rotary cutter, cut them together on the diagonal...


Using a 1/4" seam, sew one Color 1 triangle to one Color 2 triangle...being careful not to stretch fabric. Press seam to darker side. Repeat this with remaining triangles to make four half squares. If needed, square these off to be 4-1/2" squares...now...on to Page 2!
