Assemble the Block

1. Sew together one green print triangle and one cream print triangle to make a green triangle-square (Triangle-Square Diagram). Press the seam allowance toward the green triangle. Repeat to make a total of four green triangle-squares, eight lavender triangle-squares, and four purple triangle-squares.

2. Lay out the triangle-squares in four horizontal rows (Block Assembly Diagram). Sew together the squares in each row. Press the seam allowances in one direction, alternating the direction with each row. Then join the rows to make a block. Press the seam allowances in one direction.
