Materials

Muslin and gold print scraps

Finished block: 4" square

 

Cut the Fabrics

From muslin, cut:
5—1-7⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for a total of 10 small triangles
4—1-1⁄2" squares

From gold print, cut:
1—2-7⁄8" square, cutting it in half diagonally for a total of 2 large triangles
3—1-7⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for a total of 6 small triangles

 

Assemble the Block

1.  Sew together one muslin small triangle and one gold print small triangle to make a triangle-square (Diagram 1). Repeat to make a total of six triangle-squares.

2.  Sew together two triangle-squares and two muslin 1-1⁄2" squares in pairs (Diagram 2). Press the seam allowances toward the muslin squares. Then join the pairs to make a Four-Patch unit. Press the seam allowance in one direction. The Four-Patch unit should measure 2-1⁄2" square, including the seam allowances. Repeat to make a second Four-Patch unit.

3.  Referring to Diagram 3, sew the two muslin small triangles to a triangle-square to make a large pieced triangle. Press the seam allowances toward the muslin triangles. Then join the long side of a gold print large triangle to the long side of the large pieced triangle to make a triangle unit. Press the seam allowance toward the gold triangle. The triangle unit should measure 2-1⁄2" square, including the seam allowances. Repeat to make a second triangle unit.

4.  Sew together the Four-Patch units and triangle units in pairs. Press the seam allowances toward the Four-Patch units. Then join the pairs to make a block (Block Assembly Diagram). Press the seam allowance in one direction.
