1. Referring to Diagram 10, lay out four blue-and-tan floral 2-1/2" squares, four tan tone-on-tone 2-1/2x4-1/2" rectangles, and one red-and-tan print 4-1/2" square in three rows. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams toward squares. Join rows to make a large uneven Nine-Patch unit. Press seams in one direction. The unit should be 8-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make five large uneven Nine-Patch units total.

Referring to Assemble A Blocks, Step 1, use two tan tone-on-tone 2-1/2" squares, one blue-and-tan floral 2-1/2" square, and one red-and-tan print 2-1/2" square to make a corner Four-Patch unit (Diagram 11). The unit should be 4-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 20 corner Four-Patch units total.

Lay out one large uneven Nine-Patch unit, four corner Four-Patch units, and four tan tone-on-tone 4-1/2x8-1/2" rectangles in three rows (Diagram 12; note position of blue-and-tan floral and red-and-tan print squares in corner Four-Patch units). Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams away from tan tone-on-tone rectangles. Join rows to make block B. Press seams in one direction.
