## Assemble Large Triangle Pairs

Sew together a black print large triangle and an orange print large triangle to make a large triangle pair (Diagram 1). Press seam toward black print. Repeat to make 104 large triangle pairs total.

## Assemble Big Dipper Blocks

1. Join two large triangle pairs to make a large hourglass unit (Diagram 2). Press seam in one direction. The large hourglass unit should be 3-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 32 large hourglass units total.

2. Referring to Diagram 3, lay out four large hourglass units in pairs, rotating top right and bottom left hourglass units 90º so each orange triangle is next to a black triangle. Sew together pieces in each pair. Press seams in opposite directions. Join pairs to make a Big Dipper block. Press seam in one direction. The block should be 6-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make eight Big Dipper blocks total.

## Assemble Wind Blown Square Blocks

To camouflage seams in the blocks and make them look like parallelograms without using templates, you should use sets of two matching black print small triangles in the assembly.

1. For one Wind Blown Square block, gather four sets of two matching black print small triangles, four assorted orange print small triangles, one orange print 2-5⁄8" square, and four large triangle pairs.

2. Pull one black print small triangle from each set. Sew black print small triangles to opposite edges of orange print 2-5⁄8" square (Diagram 4). Add black print small triangles to remaining edges to make center unit. Press all seams toward black triangles. The center unit should be 3-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.

3. Join an orange print small triangle and a remaining black print small triangle to make a small triangle pair (Diagram 5). Press seam toward black triangle. Repeat to make four small triangle pairs total.

4. Matching black prints as shown in Diagram 6, sew small triangle pairs to opposite edges of center unit. Add small triangle pair to remaining edges. Press seams toward triangle pairs. The center unit now should be 4-3⁄4" square including seam allowances.

5. Sew large triangle pairs to opposite edges of center unit (Diagram 7). Add large triangle pairs to remaining edges to make a Wind Blown Square block. Press all seams toward large triangle pairs. The block should be 6-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.

6. Repeat steps 1–5 to make six Wind Blown Square blocks total.

## Assemble Peace and Plenty Blocks

1. Sew together a black print small triangle and an orange print small triangle to make a triangle-square. Press seam toward black print. The triangle-square should be 2" square including seam allowances. Referring to Diagram 8, add an orange print small triangle and a black print small triangle to adjacent edges to make a triangle unit. Press seams away from triangle-square. Repeat to make 16 triangle units total.

2. Join a large triangle pair and a triangle unit to make a quarter block (Diagram 9). Press seam toward large triangle pair. The quarter block should be 3-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 16 quarter blocks total.

3. Referring to Diagram 10, sew together four quarter blocks in pairs. Press seams in opposite directions. Then join pairs to make a Peace and Plenty block. Press seam in one direction. The block should be 6-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four Peace and Plenty blocks total.
