To speed piece the half square, stack the Color 1
and Color 2 2-7/8" x 23" strips right sides together, and mark the
diagonals as in the step above. Marl the 2-7/8" square lines as well. Sew a SCANT
1/4" above and below the marked diagonals, pivoting at the square lines. Cut apart on
the square lines, and on the marked diagonals between the rows of stitching. This will
give you sixteen half squares. Press seam allowances towards the darker
fabrics...on to Page 2!
