1. Referring to Diagram 1, sew together a mottled dark gold 2-1⁄2" square and two mottled ivory-and-gold position 1 rectangles. Press seams toward rectangles.
2. Add red, green, and gold print position 2 rectangles to remaining edges of mottled dark gold square (Diagram 2). Press seams toward rectangles.
3. Join mottled ivory-and-gold position 3 rectangles to opposite edges of Step 2 unit (Diagram 3); press seams as before. Continue in the same manner, adding pairs of rectangles in numerical sequence, to make a Courthouse Steps block (Diagram 4). The block should be 12-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.
4. Repeat steps 1–3 to make five Courthouse Steps blocks total.
