Assemble Blocks

1. Sew together a white print 2×42" strip and a teal dot 2×42" strip to make a white strip set (Diagram 1). Press seam toward teal dot. Cut strip set into sixteen 2"-wide white segments.

2. Sew together two white segments to make a white Four-Patch unit (Diagram 2). Press seam in one direction. The unit should be 3-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make eight white Four-Patch units total.

3. Sew together a gray print 2×42" strip and a teal dot 2×42" strip to make a gray strip set. Press seam toward teal dot. Cut strip set into sixteen 2"-wide gray segments. Using gray segments, repeat Step 2 to make eight gray Four-Patch units (Diagram 3).

4. Sew together a white print 2×42" strip and a gray print 2×42" strip to make a white/gray strip set. Press seam toward gray print. Cut strip set into eight 2"-wide white/gray segments. Using white/gray segments, repeat Step 2 to make four white/gray Four-Patch units (Diagram 4).

5. Referring to Diagram 5, lay out two white Four-Patch units, two gray Four-Patch units, one white/gray Four-Patch unit, and four teal dot print 3-1⁄2" squares in three horizontal rows. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams toward teal dot squares. Join rows to make a block. Press seams toward middle row. The block should be 9-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.

2. Sew together a teal dot reversed triangle and a black floral reversed triangle to make segment B (Diagram 7). Press seam away from teal dot. The segment should be 5×2-3⁄4" including seam allowances. Repeat to make 20 B segments total.

3. Referring to Diagram 8, sew together one A segment and one B segment to make a triangle unit. Press seam in one direction. The unit should be 9-1⁄2×2-3⁄4" including seam allowances. Repeat to make 20 teal dot triangle units total.

4. Using black dot triangles and teal floral triangles, repeat Step 1 to make 16 A segments. Using black dot reversed triangles and teal floral reversed triangles, repeat Step 2 to make 16 B segments. Using A and B segments just made, repeat Step 3 to make 16 teal floral triangle units (Diagram 9).
