Materials

• Olive green print and gold print scraps

Finished block: 9" square

Cut the Fabrics

From olive green print, cut:

• 3-3-7⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for a total of 6 small triangles (you'll have 1 leftover triangle)

• 1-6-7⁄8" square, cutting it in half diagonally for a total of 2 large triangles (you'll have 1 leftover triangle)

From gold print, cut:

• 3-3-7⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally to make a total of 6 small triangles (you'll have 1 leftover triangle)

• 1-6-7⁄8" square, cutting it in half diagonally for a total of 2 large triangles (you'll have 1 leftover triangle)

Assemble the Block

1. Sew together one olive green print small triangle and one gold print small triangle to make a small triangle-square (Diagram 1). Press the seam allowance toward the gold triangle. Repeat to make a total of five small triangle-squares.

2. Sew together one olive green print large triangle and one gold print large triangle to make a large triangle- square (Diagram 2). Press the seam allowance toward the gold triangle.

3. Sew together two small triangle-squares to make a pair (Diagram 3). Press the seam allowance in one direction. Add the pair to one edge of the large triangle-square. Press the seam allowance toward the large triangle-square. Then join three small triangle-squares to make a row. Press the seam allowances in one direction. Then join the row to the large triangle-square to make a block (Block Assembly Diagram). Press the seam allowance in one direction.
