To make the first type of corner unit, sew a Color 5 half square triangle to the bottom edge of a Color 4 square. Press seam towards the triangle. Sew another Color 5 triangle to the right side of the same square. Press seam towards the triangle. Now add a Color 1 large triangle. Press seam towards the large triangle. Make two of these...

The second type of corner unit is made in the same way, but uses a half square in the corner, rather than a square. Make two of these...

To make the "Indian Hatchet" units, stack a Color 5 small square atop the left top corner of a Color 2 square, right sides together. Mark the diagonal on the back of the small square, and sew ON this line. Trim off the excess seam allowance, pressing the remainder towards the small triangle. Repeat this with another small square on the opposing corner. Make eight of these...

Now piece the whole block, by joining the previously made units, using the solitary Color 3  3-1/2" square as the block's center. Use all 1/4" seams to piece the block, and press seams in alternating directions as you go!

Happy Quilting All!
