Cut and Assemble Pieced Corner Triangles

From assorted white prints, cut:
2—2-1⁄4" squares

From assorted 1930s prints, cut:
4—2-3⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for 8 small triangles total
2—2-1⁄4" squares

1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each white print 2-1⁄4" square.

2. Layer a marked white print square atop a 1930s print 2-1⁄4" square. Sew together with two seams, stitching 1⁄4" on each side of drawn line (Diagram 8). Cut pair apart on drawn line to make two triangle units. Press each triangle unit open, pressing seam away from white print, to make two triangle-squares. Each triangle-square should be 1-7⁄8" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four triangle-squares total.

3. Referring to Diagram 9, sew two matching 1930s print small triangles to white print edges of a triangle-square to make a pieced corner triangle. Press seams toward 1930s print. Repeat to make four pieced corner triangles total.
