** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block ** 

Using the Template B provided, cut four hexagonal units, keeping the grain line aligned with the straight of the fabric grain...

Next use the template A's to cut four triangles and one square, again keeping the straight of the grain in mind...

Next you want to lightly mark the 1/4" seam lines on the wrong sides of the fabrics along all four edges of the square, and one side of each of the hexagonal units...

Line up one hexagonal unit right sides together with the left edge of the square, and stitch on the sewing line between the 1/4" marks only, backstitching 1 stitch at beginning and end of the seam. Press the seam towards the hexagonal unit. Repeat with another hexagonal unit on the opposing edge of the square...on to Page 2!
