Assemble Blocks

1. Referring to Diagram 3, lay out a set of four pink Sawtooth Star units, four multicolor check 4x7-1/2" rectangles, and one black floral 7-1/2" square in rows.

2. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams toward rectangles. Join rows to make a pink block. Press seams toward center row. The block should be 14-1/2" square including seam allowances.

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make 5 pink blocks total. Using green Sawtooth Star units, multicolor stripe 4x7-1/2", and lime green floral 7-1/2" squares, and rectangles, repeat steps 1 and 2 to make four green blocks total.
