Materials

• Red print and beige print scraps

Finished block: 12" square

Cut the Fabrics

From red print, cut:

• 8-3-7⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for a total of 16 triangles

From beige print, cut:

• 8-3-7⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for a total of 16 triangles

Assemble the Block

1. Sew together one red print triangle and one beige print triangle to make a triangle-square (Triangle-Square Diagram). The triangle-square should measure 3-1⁄2" square, including the seam allowance. Repeat to make a total of 16 triangle-squares.

2. Lay out the triangle-squares in four horizontal rows (Block Assembly Diagram).

3. Sew together the triangle-squares in each row. Press the seam allowances in one direction, alternating the direction with each row. Then join the rows to make a block. Press the seam allowances in one direction.
