Assemble Square-in-a-Square Blocks and Units

1.    Sew solid white small triangles to opposite edges of a yellow print 6" square (Diagram 5). Add solid white small triangles to remaining edges to make a Square-in-a-Square unit. Press all seams toward triangles. The unit should be 8-1⁄4" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 30 Square-in-a-Square units total.

2.    Sew solid yellow large triangles to opposite edges of a Square-in-a-Square unit. Add solid yellow large triangles to remaining edges to make a Square-in-a-Square block (Diagram 6). Press all seams toward yellow triangles. The block should be 11-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 12 Square-in-a-Square blocks total.

3.    Sew solid yellow large triangles to opposite edges of a Square-in-a-Square unit. Add a solid yellow large triangle to one remaining edge to make a side unit (Diagram 7). Press all seams toward yellow triangles. Repeat to make 14 side units total.

4.    Sew solid white large triangles to two solid yellow large triangles to make mirror-image triangle pairs. Press seams toward yellow triangles. Join triangle pairs to adjacent edges of a Square-in-a-Square unit to make a corner unit (Diagram 8). Repeat to make four corner units total.
