Assemble Units

1.    Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each white tone-on-tone 1-3⁄4" square, green print 1-1⁄2" square, dark tan print No. 1—2-1⁄2" square, and light tan print No. 1—1-1⁄2" square. (To prevent fabric from stretching as you draw lines, place 220-grit sandpaper under each square.)

2.    Align a marked white tone-on-tone square with one corner of red tone-on-tone 8-1⁄2×31-1⁄2" rectangle (Diagram 1; note direction of drawn line). Sew on drawn line, then trim excess, leaving a 1⁄4" seam allowance. Press open attached triangle, pressing seam toward triangle.

3.    In same manner, add remaining marked white tone-on-tone square to opposite corner of red rectangle, reversing direction of drawn line. Stitch, trim, and press as before to make Unit A (Diagram 2). Unit A should be 8-1⁄2×31-1⁄2" including seam allowances.

4.    Add a marked green print square to one end of a white tone-on-tone 1-1⁄2×8-1⁄2" rectangle (Diagram 3; note direction of drawn line). Stitch, trim, and press as before to make Unit B. Unit B should be 1-1⁄2×8-1⁄2" including seam allowances.

5.    Repeat Step 4, reversing direction of drawn line, to make Unit B reversed (Diagram 4).

6.    Add a marked dark tan print No. 1 square to one end of a green print 2-1⁄2×8-1⁄2" rectangle (Diagram 5; again note direction of drawn line). Stitch, trim, and press as before to make Unit C. Unit C should be 2-1⁄2×8-1⁄2" including seam allowances.

7.    Repeat Step 6, reversing direction of drawn line, to make Unit C reversed (Diagram 6).

8.    Add a marked green print square to one end of white tone-on-tone 1-1⁄2×31-1⁄2" strip (Diagram 7; note direction of drawn line). Stitch, trim, and press as before. In same manner, add a marked green print square to opposite end of white tone-on-tone strip (again note direction of drawn line). Stitch, trim, and press as before to make Unit D (Diagram 7). Unit D should be 1-1⁄2×31-1⁄2" including seam allowances.

9.    Using green print 1-1⁄2×31-1⁄2" strip and two marked light tan print No. 1 squares, repeat Step 8 to make Unit E (Diagram 8).

10.    Add a marked green print square to one corner of a light tan print No. 1—3-1⁄2×7-1⁄2" rectangle (Diagram 9; note direction of drawn line). Stitch, trim, and press as before to make Unit F. Unit F should be 3-1⁄2×7-1⁄2" including seam allowances.

11.    Repeat Step 10, reversing direction of drawn line and using opposite end of rectangle, to make Unit F reversed (Diagram 10).

12.    Referring to Diagram 11, join a dark tan print No. 2—3-1⁄2×4-1⁄2" rectangle, a light tan print No. 2—3-1⁄2×4-1⁄2" rectangle, and a dark tan print No. 1—3-1⁄2×4-1⁄2" rectangle in a row to make Unit G. Press seams in one direction. Unit G should be 4-1⁄2×9-1⁄2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make a second Unit G.
