Assemble Pieced Blocks

1. Sew matching blue print 2-1⁄4 ×5-3⁄4" rectangles to opposite edges of an assorted tan print 2-1⁄4 ×5-3⁄4" rectangle (Diagram 2). Add matching blue print 2-1⁄4 ×5-3⁄4" rectangles to remaining edges to make a center unit. Press all seams toward blue print rectangles. The center unit should be 9-1⁄4 ×5-3⁄4" including seam allowances.

2. Repeat Step 1 to make 24 center units total.

3. Referring to Diagram 3, add brown tone-on-tone 1-3⁄4 ×5-3⁄4" rectangles to short edges of center unit to make Block A. Press seams toward brown tone-on-tone rectangles. Block A should be 11-3⁄4 ×5-3⁄4" including seam allowances. 

4. Repeat Step 3 to make 12 A blocks total.

5. Referring to Diagram 4, add brown tone-on-tone 1-3⁄4 ×9-1⁄4" rectangles to opposite edges of a remaining center unit to make Block B. Press seams toward brown tone-on-tone rectangles. Block B should be 9-1⁄4 ×8-1⁄4" including seam allowances.

6. Repeat Step 5 to make 12 B blocks total.

7. To make one C block, gather one tan print 2-1⁄4" square, a set of pieces from one green print (one 2-1⁄4" square, two 2-1⁄4 ×4" rectangles, and one 2-1⁄4 ×5-3⁄4" rectangle), and a set of pieces from one red print (one 2-1⁄4 ×5-3⁄4" rectangle, two 2-1⁄4 ×7-1⁄2" rectangles, and one 2-1⁄4 ×9-1⁄4" rectangle).

8. Sew together tan print and green print 2-1⁄4" squares to make a center section (Diagram 5). Press seam toward green print.

9. Add a green print 2-1⁄4 ×4" rectangle to bottom edge of center section (Diagram 6); press as before. 

10. Add a green print 2-1⁄4 ×4" rectangle to left-hand edge of center section (Diagram 7). Then add a green print 2-1⁄4 ×5-3⁄4" rectangle to top edge of center section to make a block center (Diagram 8). Press all seams away from center section. The block center should be 5-3⁄4" square including seam allowances.

11. Referring to Diagram 9, add red print strips to block center in clockwise order to make Block C. Press all seams away from block center. Block C should be 9-1⁄4" square including seam allowances.

12. Repeat steps 7–11 to make seven C blocks total.
