Assemble Units

1.    Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each assorted coral print and dot 2-1⁄2" square. (To prevent fabric from stretching as you draw the lines, place 220-grit sandpaper under each square.)

2.    Align a marked coral print or dot square with one end of an assorted yellow print or dot 2-1⁄2 ×4-1⁄2" rectangle (Diagram 1; note direction of marked line). Sew on drawn line; trim excess fabric, leaving a 1⁄4" seam allowance. Press open attached triangle to make a yellow small unit. The small unit should be 2-1⁄2 ×4-1⁄2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make 60 yellow small units total.

3.    Repeat Step 2 using marked coral print or dot squares and assorted green print or dot 2-1⁄2 ×4-1⁄2" rectangles to make 60 green small units total.

4.    Align a marked coral print or dot square with one end of an assorted yellow print or dot 2-1⁄2 ×6-1⁄2" rectangle (Diagram 2; note direction of marked line). Sew on drawn line; trim excess fabric, leaving a 1⁄4" seam allowance. Press open attached triangle to make a yellow large unit. The large unit should be 2-1⁄2 ×6-1⁄2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make 40 yellow large units total.
