Assemble Triangle-Squares

1. Use a pencil to draw a diagonal line on wrong side of each light gold print 1-5⁄8" square, tan print 1-7⁄8" square, and dark gold print 2-3⁄8" square.

2. Layer a marked light gold print 1-5⁄8" square atop an olive green print 1-5⁄8" square. Sew a scant 1⁄4" from each side of drawn line (Triangle-Square Diagram). Cut pair apart on drawn line to make two triangle units. Press each triangle unit open, pressing seam away from light print, to make two small triangle-squares. Each small triangle-square should be 1-1⁄4" square including seam allowances.

3. Repeat Step 2 to make 44 small triangle-squares total.

4. Using marked tan print 1-7⁄8" squares and olive green print 1-7⁄8" squares, repeat Step 2 to make 48 medium triangle-squares. Each medium triangle-square should be 1-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.

5. Using marked dark gold print 2-3⁄8" squares and brown print 2-3⁄8" squares, repeat Step 2 to make 44 large triangle-squares. Each large triangle-square should be 2" square including seam allowances.
