Next speed piece the half squares, by stacking the Color 1 and Color 2
2-7/8" x 23" strips, right sides together and all edges
aligned. On the back of the top strip, lightly mark the 2-7/8"
square lines and mark the diagonals in the direction shown at left.
Now sew a SCANT 1/4" above and below the marked diagonals,
pivoting at the square lines. Now cut apart ON the marked diagonals,
and on the 2-7/8" square lines. This will give you sixteen half
squares. Press seam allowances towards the darker fabric. Trim these
back to measure 2-1/2" if needed...
