Assemble Sashing Units
1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each red-and-cream print 1-1/4" square.
2. Align marked red-and-cream print squares with two corners of a dark brown print 2x9-1/2" rectangle (Diagram 5; note direction of marked lines). Stitch, trim, and press as in Assemble Blocks, Step 3.
3. Repeat Step 2 to add marked red-and-cream print squares to remaining corners of Step 2 dark brown print rectangle to make a sashing unit (Diagram 5; again note direction of marked lines). The sashing unit should be 9-1/2x2" including seam allowances.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make 24 sashing units total. (Set aside remaining marked red-and-cream print 1-1/4" squares for inner border.)
