Assemble the Block
The key to sewing angled pieces together is aligning marked matching points carefully. Whether you’re stitching by machine or hand, start and stop sewing precisely at the matching points and backstitch to secure seam ends. This prepares the angle for the next piece to be set in.
1. Pin together one pink print diamond and one pink print diamond reversed (Diagram 1). Carefully align the matching points indicated on the diamond pattern. Sew together, starting and stopping at the dots, being sure not to sew into the 1⁄4" seam allowances. Set in a cream print square to make a flower center. Repeat to make a total of four flower centers.
2. Add a cream print triangle to each side edge of a flower center (Diagram 2), being careful not to sew into the 1⁄4" seam allowance. Then set in one light pink print diamond and one light pink print diamond reversed on the sides. Add a green print triangle to the base of each flower center to make four flower units.
3. Lay out the flower units, cream print rectangles, and dark green print square in three horizontal rows (Diagram 3). Sew together the pieces in each row. Press the seam allowances toward the cream print rectangles. Then join the rows to make a block (Block Assembly Diagram). Press the seam allowances in one direction.
