Assemble Blocks and Border Star Units

1.    Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each assorted yellow, orange, blue, and pink print 1-7⁄8" square.

2.    Layer a marked print square atop a multicolor dot 1-7⁄8" square. Sew together with two seams, stitching 1⁄4" on each side of marked line (Diagram 1). Cut apart on drawn line. Press seam allowances toward darker print to make two triangle-squares. Each should be 1-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 68 triangle-squares total (17 sets of four matching triangle-squares).

3.    Lay out five assorted green print 1-1⁄2" squares and four matching triangle-squares in three rows (Diagram 2; note orientation of multicolor dot triangles). Sew together pieces in each row. Join rows to make a star unit. The unit should be 3-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 17 star units total. Set aside four star units for the border.

4.    Referring to Diagram 3, lay out a star unit, four assorted green print 1-1⁄2" squares, and four cream print 1-1⁄2 ×3-1⁄2" rectangles in three rows. Sew together pieces in each row. Join rows to make a block. The block should be 5-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 13 blocks total.
