Assemble the Blocks
The instructions that follow are for making one red Basket block. Repeat these steps using one red or blue print in each block to make a total of 13 Basket blocks.
1. For a red Basket block you'll need nine small triangles and one 2-1/2" square from the same red print, one solid white large triangle, 11 solid white small triangles, two solid white 2-1/2x6-1/2" rectangles, one solid white 2-1/2" square, one yellow print large triangle, and six yellow print small triangles.
2. Sew together one red print small triangle and one solid white small triangle to make a small red-and-white triangle-square (see Diagram 1). Press the seam allowance toward the red print triangle. The pieced small triangle-square should measure 2-1/2" square, including seam allowances. Repeat to make a total of seven small red-and-white triangle-squares.
3. Repeat Step 2 using red print small triangles and yellow print small triangles to make a total of two small red-and-yellow triangle-squares (see Diagram 2). Press the seam allowances toward the red print triangles.
4. Repeat Step 2 using solid white small triangles and yellow print small triangles to make a total of four small white-and-yellow triangle-squares (see Diagram 3). Press the seam allowances toward the yellow print triangles.
