2.  Sew together the four green triangle-squares in pairs (Diagram 2). Press the seam allowances in opposite directions. Then join the pairs to make a green unit.

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make a blue unit, purple unit, and red unit.

4.  Sew together the four units in pairs (Diagram 3). Press the seam allowances in opposite directions. Then join the pairs to make a block (Block Assembly Diagram). Press the seam allowance in one direction.
