STEP 1. MAKE QUARTER SQUARE TRIANGLES

Start by making half square triangles: Draw a pencil line along the diagonal of the wrong side of each Fabric 3 square. Match with a Fabric 2 square. Sew ¼” away from each side of the marked line. Cut apart on the line and press. Repeat with each set.

To make quarter square triangles: Draw a diagonal pencil line on the wong side of each Fabric 1/3 HST unit. Nest seams with Fabric 1/2 HSTs. Sew ¼” away from each side of the marked line. Cut apart on the marked line. Repeat to make  4 sets.
