1. Referring to Diagram 1, sew together two black floral 3x17" strips and one red print 3x17" strip to make strip set A. Press seams toward black floral. Cut strip set into five 3"-wide A segments.
2. Referring to Diagram 2, sew together two black floral 3x8" rectangles and one A segment to make unit A. Press seams toward black floral. Unit A should be 8" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make five A units total.
3. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each cream print 3" square.

Press open attached triangle, pressing seam toward black floral. In the same manner, add marked cream print squares to remaining corners to make an A block. Block A should be 8" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make five A blocks total.
