    Press seams in directions indicated by arrows on diagrams. If no direction is specified, press seam toward darker fabric.

 

1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each solid white 4-7⁄8" square.

2. Layer a marked solid white square atop an assorted red print 4-7⁄8" square. Sew with right sides together, stitching 1⁄4" on each side of drawn line (Diagram 1). Cut pair apart on drawn line and press open to make two triangle-squares. Each triangle-square should be 4-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 12 triangle-squares total.
