Assemble Blocks

1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of 128 cream tone-on-tone 2-1⁄2" squares.

2. Layer a marked cream tone-on-tone square atop a green tone-on-tone 2-1⁄2" square. Sew on marked line (Diagram 1). Trim excess, leaving 1⁄4" seam allowance. Press open to make a triangle-square. The triangle-square should be 2-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 64 green triangle-squares total.

3. Using remaining marked cream tone-on-tone 2-1⁄2" squares and blue tone-on-tone 2-1⁄2" squares, repeat Step 2 to make 64 blue triangle-squares.

4. Referring to Diagram 2 for orientation of cream tone-on-tone pieces, lay out one green triangle-square, four assorted purple print 2-1⁄2" squares, three cream tone-on-tone 2-1⁄2" squares, and one blue triangle-square in three rows. Sew together pieces in rows. Join rows to make a corner unit. The unit should be 6-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 16 purple corner units total.

5. Using assorted yellow, pink, and blue prints instead of purple, repeat Step 4 to make 16 corner units in each colorway.

6. Sew together two purple corner units to make Block A (Diagram 3; note orientation of cream tone-on-tone pieces). The block should be 6-1⁄2 ×12-1⁄2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make a second purple A block.

7. Using pink corner units, repeat Step 6 to make two pink A blocks.

8. Sew together four purple corner units in pairs (Diagram 4; note orientation of cream tone-on-tone pieces). Join pairs to make Block B. The block should be 12-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make three purple B blocks total.

9. Using yellow, pink, and blue corner units, repeat Step 8 to make four yellow B blocks, three pink B blocks, and four blue B blocks.
