## Assemble the Block

1. Using thread in a color that matches the fabric, appliqué the green print basket handle onto a tan print triangle.

2. Sew together the appliquéd tan print triangle with the pink print triangle to make a triangle-square **(Diagram 1)**. Press the seam allowance toward the pink print triangle. The triangle-square should measure 4-1⁄2" square, including the seam allowances.

3. Sew green print triangles to the two tan print 2-1⁄2" squares to make two basket feet **(Diagram 2)**.

4. Sew the basket feet to adjacent sides of the triangle-square** (Diagram 3)**. Press the seam allowances toward the basket feet. Then join the remaining tan print triangle to the bottom of the basket to make a block **(Block Assembly Diagram)**. Press the seam allowance toward the tan print triangle.
