Now speed piece the half
squares, by stacking the remaining Color 1 and the Color 3 2-7/8" x
strips, right sides together and all edges aligned. Lightly mark the 2-7/8" square lines
and mark the diagonals on the back
of the top strip as well. Sew 1/4"
above and below the marked diagonals, pivoting at the 2-7/8" square lines as shown at left.
Cut apart ON
the marked diagonals, and on the square lines. This will give you eight half
squares. Press to darker side. These should measure 2-1/2"...
