** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **

Start by using the template to cut out four trapezoids from each of the Colors 1,2,3 and 4 strips. Then mark and cut the Color 5  3-1/2" x 42" strip into twelve 3-1/2" squares.




To make unit 1 sew a Color 5 square to the left end of a Color 3 trapezoid. To make unit 2 sew another Color 5 square to the right of a Color 2 trapezoid. To make unit 3 sew the next green square to the right end of a Color 3 trapezoid. The unit 4 piece is a Color 2 trapezoid. You will be making two of this block quadrant, so you will need two of each of these units...


Now sew unit two to unit one, using a scant 1/4" seam. Press seam allowances towards the top unit...


Next, sew the trapezoid end of unit 3 to the square end of unit two from a point 1/4" within the left edge to within 1/4" from the end of the trap...on to Page 2!
