1. Sew matching print 2x2-1⁄2" rectangles to short edges of a solid white 2x4" rectangle (Diagram 1). Press seams away from solid white rectangle.
2. Join matching print 2-1⁄2x8" rectangles to remaining edges of Step 1 rectangle to make block center. The block center should be 8x6" including seam allowances.
3. Referring to Diagram 2, continue adding print strips to block center in the same manner, pressing all seams away from block center, to make a block. The block should be 16x14" including seam allowances.
4. Repeat steps 1–3 to make three blocks total.
