Next speed piece the half
squares, by stacking the Color 1 and Color 3 3-7/8" squares,
right sides together and all edges aligned. On the back of the top
strip, lightly mark the diagonal, shown as a straight line at far left. Now sew 1/4"
on each side of the marked line (dotted lines, far left). Now cut apart
on the marked
diagonal. This will give you two half squares. Press seam allowance
to the darker side. These should measure 3-1/2".
Repeat this with the other Color 3 3-7/8"square and
the Color 2 3-7/8"square...
