Materials

•  Solid pink, solid white, and solid gray scraps

 

Finished block: 11-1⁄4" square
 

 

Cut the Fabrics

From solid pink, cut:

•  1—9-5⁄8" square, cutting it in half diagonally for a total of 2 large triangles (you’ll have 1 leftover triangle)

From solid white, cut:

•  1—9-5⁄8" square, cutting it in half diagonally for a total of 2 large triangles (you’ll have 1 leftover triangle)

•  16—2-1⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for a total of 32 small triangles

From solid gray, cut:

•    16—2-1⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for a total of 32 small triangles
 

 

Assemble the Block

1. Sew together the pink large triangle and the white large triangle to make a large triangle-square (Diagram 1). Press the seam allowance toward the pink triangle. The large triangle-square should measure 9-1⁄4" square, including the seam allowances.

2. Sew together one white small triangle and one gray small triangle to make a small triangle-square (Diagram 2). Press the seam allowance toward the gray triangle. The small triangle-square should measure 1-3⁄4" square, including the seam allowances. Repeat to make a total of 32 small triangle-squares.

3. Sew together seven small triangle-squares in a row to make the top border (Diagram 3). Press the seam allowances in one direction. Join the top border to the top edge of the large triangle-square. Repeat for the bottom border. Press the seam allowances toward the large triangle-square.

4. Sew together nine small triangle-squares in a row for a side border. Press the seam allowances in one direction. Repeat to make a second side border. Join the borders to the side edges of the large triangle-square to make a block (Block Assembly Diagram). Press the seam allowances toward the large triangle-square.
