**From navy print, cut:**

- 4—2-3⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for a total of 8 triangles

**From beige print, cut:**

- 4—2×3-1⁄2" rectangles
- 4—2-3⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for a total of 8 triangles

## Assemble the Block

1. Sew together one beige print triangle and one navy print triangle to make a triangle-square** (Diagram 1)**. Press the seam allowance toward the navy print triangle. The pieced triangle-square should measure 2" square, including the seam allowances. Repeat to make a total of eight triangle-squares.

2. Lay out a beige print square, a light blue print square, and two triangle-squares in pairs** (Diagram 2)**. Sew together the pairs. Press the seam allowances in opposite directions. Then join the pairs to make a corner unit. Press the seam allowance in one direction. The pieced corner unit should measure 3-1⁄2" square, including the seam allowances. Repeat to make a total of four corner units.

3. Lay out the four pieced corner units and the remaining pieces in three horizontal rows **(Diagram 3)**. Sew together the pieces in each row. Press the seam allowances toward the beige print rectangles. Then join the rows to make a block **(Block Assembly Diagram)**. Press the seam allowances in one direction.
