** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **


Start by stacking, marking and cutting your larger squares on the diagonal, using a rotary cutter and being careful not to stretch fabrics...



Then stack, mark and cut your 4-7/8" strips into three 4-7/8" squares of each...


Now cut these 4-7/8" squares on the diagonals... 


To make this block  first sew together the pieces for the diagonal rows. Add a light triangle to a dark and sew using a 1/4" seam. Press seams towards darker fabrics...on to Page 2!
