From dark green print, cut:
1—1-1⁄4×12" strip

From green print, cut:

Assemble the Block

1. Aligning long edges, sew together one white print 1-1⁄4×12" strip and one dark green print 1-1⁄4×12" strip to make a strip set. Press the seam allowance toward the dark green strip.

2.  Cut the strip set into eight 1-1⁄4"-wide segments (Diagram 1).

3.  Join two segments to make a small Four-Patch unit (Diagram 2). The pieced small Four-Patch unit should measure 2" square, including the seam allowances. Repeat to make a total of four small Four-Patch units.

4.  Sew together two small Four-Patch units and two green print 2" squares in pairs (Diagram 3). Press the seam allowances toward the green print 2" squares. Then join the pairs to make a green print Four-Patch unit. Press the seam allowance in one direction. The pieced green print Four-Patch unit should measure 3-1⁄2" square, including the seam allowances. Repeat to make a second green print Four-Patch unit.

5.  Sew together the two green print Four-Patch units and the two green print 3-1⁄2" squares in pairs. Press the seam allowances toward the 3-1⁄2" squares. Then join the pairs to make a block (Block Assembly Diagram). Press the seam allowance in one direction.
