## Assemble the Block

1. Sew together a solid white triangle and a blue print triangle to make a blue triangle-square **(Diagram 1)**. Press the seam allowance toward the blue print triangle. Repeat to make a total of three blue triangle-squares.

2. Join a blue print triangle and a red print triangle to make a blue-and-red triangle-square **(Diagram 2)**. Press the seam allowance toward the blue print triangle. Repeat to make a total of three blue-and-red triangle-squares.

3. Sew together a solid white triangle and a red print triangle to make a red triangle-square **(Diagram 3)**. Press the seam allowance toward the red print triangle. Repeat to make a total of three red triangle-squares.

4. Lay out the triangle-squares in three horizontal rows **(Diagram 4)**. Sew together the squares in each row. Press the seam allowances in one direction, alternating the direction with each row. Then join the rows to make a block **(Block Assembly Diagram)**. Press the seam allowances in one direction.
