1. Mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each hand-dyed green 2-1/2" square and 72 of the assorted red, green, brown, white, and navy blue print 2-1/2" squares.

2. Align a marked hand-dyed green square with one corner
of a mottled navy blue 4-1/2" square (Diagram 1; note direction of drawn line). Sew on drawn line; trim excess, leaving 1/4" seam allowance. Press open attached triangle.

3. Align a marked red, green, brown, white, or navy blue print square with opposite corner of mottled navy blue square (Diagram 1; again note direction of drawn line). Stitch, trim, and press as before to make a Floating Star unit. The unit should be 4-1/2" square including seam allowances.

4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make 72 Floating Star units total.

Press seam in one direction. The unit should be 4-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 72 Four-Patch units total.

6. Referring to Diagram 3, sew together two Four-Patch units and two Floating Star units in pairs. Press seams in opposite directions. Join pairs to make an Arkansas Crossroads block.
