Assemble Rectangle Units
1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of all small novelty print and remaining polka dot and tone-on-tone 2-1/2" squares.
2. Align a marked square with each end of a light brown tone-on-tone 2-1/2x6-1/2" rectangle (Diagram 2; note direction of drawn lines). Sew on drawn lines to make rectangle unit; trim excess, leaving 1/4" seam allowances. Press open attached triangles. Repeat to make 40 rectangle units total.
3. Referring to Diagram 3, sew together two rectangle units to make a rectangle pair (Diagram 3). Press seam open. Repeat to make 20 rectangle pairs total.
