** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **

To make the needed  3-1/2" will need a 14" x 3-1/2" strip of each color.  Stack these together, and then using a rotary cutter, cut into four 3-1/2" squares of each...


Next, with the 3-7/8" squares of Colors 1 and 3, stack these. Using a rotary cutter, cut them on the diagonal, being careful not to stretch fabrics...

With right sides together, sew Color 1 and Color 3 triangles together, using a 1/4" seam. Press seam allowances towards darker fabric...


Now piece the squares as shown at left, sewing four horizontal rows using 1/4" seams. Join the resulting rows and there you have it! 

Oh Susannah!!
