Assemble Triangle-Squares

1. Use a pencil to draw a diagonal line on wrong side of each tan print 1-7/8" square.

2. Place a marked tan print square atop a red print 1-7/8" square. Sew 1/4" on each side of drawn line (Triangle-Square Diagram). Cut squares apart on drawn line to make two triangle units. Press each triangle unit open, pressing seam away from tan print, to make two triangle-squares. Each should be 1-1/2" square including seam allowances.

3. Using marked tan print squares and assorted print 1-7/8" squares, repeat Step 2 to make 56 triangle-squares total.
