Sew Color 1 squares to the ends of four Color 2 trapezoids- 2 facing in each direction. Then sew Color 1 squares to the ends of two Color 3   trapezoids -1 facing in each direction. Press  all these seams towards the trapezoids... (From now on press seams towards the direction of least resistance, that is, the way the seams seem to naturally want to go)

Using two Color 1 squares and the Color 2 and 3 small triangles, sew one of each of the units shown at left...
 Now add Color 3 trapezoids to the opposing sides of each...

Add Color 2 trap-plus-square units to the opposing sides of each...
