** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **

Start by cutting the Color 1 and Color 2  3-3/4" x 11-1/4" strips into three 3-3/4" squares of each. Stack these and cut them twice on the diagonal to make twelve quarter square triangles of each...

Next, using the template provided, cut four corner units from the Color 2  12" square...

Sew pairs of Color1/Color 2 quarter square triangles right sides together using a scant 1/4" seam. Press to dark side. Make twelve units like that. Sew three of these to each corner unit as shown at bottom left...

Join the four corner units to complete your block, pressing row seams in alternate directions! ... on to Page 2!
