Assemble Double X Blocks
1. Sew together one cream print triangle and one red print triangle to make a triangle-square (Diagram 1). Press seam toward red print triangle. The triangle-square should be 2-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make six triangle-squares total.
2. Referring to Diagram 2, lay out triangle-squares and three cream print 2-1⁄2" squares in three horizontal rows. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams in one direction, alternating direction with each row. Join rows to make a Double X block. Press seams in one direction. The Double X block should be 6-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make a second Double X block.
