** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block ** 

Start by marking and cutting the Color 1  2-1/2" x 10" strip into two 2-1/2" x 5" rectangles. Then mark and cut the Color 1  5" x 8-1/2" strip into two 2-1/2" x 8-1/2" rectangles...

Now mark and cut the Color 2  2-1/2" x 11-1/2" strip into two 2-1/2" x 4-1/2" rectangles and one 2-1/2" square...
 Sew the Color 1 short rectangles to the top and bottom (5" sides) of the Color 2  4-1/2" x 5" rectangle using scant 1/4" seams. Press to dark side. Cut this at the 2-1/2" point to make two pieced strips...

Sew the Color 2 rectangles to the left and right of the Color 1  4-1/2" square. Press to dark sides...

.Now sew the two pieced strips to the top and bottom of the unit we just made. Then add one long Color 1 rectangle to the bottom...
