** Preparing the Pieces
and Sewing the Block ** 


To make the quarter squares, Stack two 71/4" squares (One
light and one dark) right sides together and all edges aligned.
Draw in a diagonal, and stitch 1/4" away from that drawn line on
each side of it. Now use a ruler and cut in half on the OPPOSITE
diagonal, and then on the drawn line. This will give you four pieced
triangles. Sew two together to make a quarter square. Do the same
thing with two different 71/4" squares to make the other quarter
square needed for the block...the others will be extras...



Each block will need two 31/2" x 61/2" rectangles, four 31/2" squares and two quarter squares...Note that there is
one "Rule"...the quarter square in the top row needs it's
dark triangles laying horizontally, and in the next row they need to
be vertical!



To piece the block, sew pairs of squares together. Add a rectangle to
the left of those, and a quarter square to the left of that. Sew two
rows together to make a block. ...on to Page 2!
