Block Assembly Instructions

1. Assemble eight Fabric D and Fabric F half square triangles. Assemble eight Fabric E and Fabric F half square triangles. Refer to the Half Square Triangles from Squares diagram if using rotary cut pieces or visit the Half Square Triangles Quilting Basic Section for more information.

2. Finger press the seam allowances toward the darker fabric. Double check measurements of the half squares. If doing the 12" block, your half squares should measure 2 1/2" unfinished. If the square ended up too small, check your seam allowance is a scant 1/4" or if it was too big, trim down.

3. Arrange the squares and half square triangles as shown in the exploded view.

4. Starting with the first row, align, pin and sew the squares and half square triangles together to form the first row unit. Sew the remaining five rows in the same manner.

6. Match the seam lines in the first and second row, nesting the seams then pin. Sew the first and second rows together. Continue to add the remaining four rows in this manner. Press the block on the back then the front.
