Assemble Triangle-Squares

1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of eight solid white 2-7⁄8" square.

2. Layer a marked solid white square atop an orange print No. 1-2-7⁄8" square. Sew together with two seams, stitching 1⁄4" on each side of marked line (Diagram 1). Cut pair apart on drawn line; press open to make two A triangle-squares. Each triangle-square should be 2-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.

3. Repeat Step 2 to make 16 A triangle-squares total.

4. Using remaining 2-7⁄8" squares in the following color combinations, mark a diagonal line on wrong side of the lighter print squares. Layer marked lighter print squares with darker print squares, sew, and cut as in Step 2 to make the specified number of triangle-squares.

2. Referring to Diagram 2 for triangle-square orientation, lay out pieces in rows. Sew together pieces in rows. Join rows to make a unit. The unit should be 8-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make four matching units total.

4. Join units in pairs. Join pairs to make a block. The block should be 16-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.

5. Referring to Diagram 3 and Diagram 4, repeat steps 1–4 to make two more blocks.
