Assemble the Block
1. Sew together the solid yellow position 1 square with the light print position 2 square to make the block center (Diagram 1). Press the seam allowance toward the solid yellow square.
2. Sew the light print 1-1⁄2×2-1⁄2" strip to a long edge (position 3) of the block center (Diagram 2). Press the seam allowance toward the light print strip.
3. Add the dark print 1-1⁄2×2-1⁄2" strip to the block in position 4 (Diagram 3). Continue to press the seam allowances away from the center.
4. Continue sewing the pieces to the block center in a clockwise direction, following the numerical sequence shown in Diagram 4, until you’ve completed a block (Block Assembly Diagram).
