Assemble Center Block

1. Gather two orange batik 4-7⁄8" squares and six orange batik 2-1⁄2" squares, six yellow batik 4-7⁄8" squares, 10 blue diamond batik 2-1⁄2" squares, two purple batik 4-7⁄8" squares, four blue batik 4-7⁄8" squares, and two black batik 4-7⁄8" squares.

2. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on the wrong side of orange batik 4-7⁄8" squares and 2-1⁄2" squares, yellow batik 4-7⁄8" squares, and blue diamond batik 2-1⁄2" squares.

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

4. Align a marked blue diamond batik 2-1⁄2" square with orange batik corner of a Step 3 triangle-square (Diagram 2). Sew on marked line. Trim excess fabric, leaving 1⁄4" seam allowance. Press attached triangle open to make a center block segment. The segment should still be 4-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four center block segments total.

5. Repeat Step 3 with four yellow batik 4-7⁄8" squares and four blue batik 4-7⁄8" squares to make eight triangle-squares.

6. Repeat Step 4, aligning blue diamond batik 2-1⁄2" squares with the yellow batik corners of four Step 5 triangle-squares to make four center block segments.

7. Repeat Step 4, aligning orange batik 2-1⁄2" squares with the yellow batik corners of the remaining Step 5 triangle-squares to make four center block segments.

8. Repeat Step 3 with two yellow batik 4-7⁄8" squares and two black batik 4-7⁄8" squares to make four triangle-squares.

9. Repeat Step 4, aligning blue diamond batik 2-1⁄2" squares with the black batik corners of the Step 8 triangle-squares to make two center block segments.

10. Repeat Step 4, aligning orange batik 2-1⁄2" squares with the black batik corners of the Step 8 triangle-squares to make two center block segments.

11. Referring to Diagram 3, sew together center block segments in four horizontal rows. Press seams open. Join rows to make center block; press in one direction. The block should be 16-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.
