*Note: Always press to the color fabric unless otherwise noted.
**Note: Half squares triangles (HST) allow plenty of room for trimming. To make HSTs with some trimming space, reduce square size by 1/4". To make HSTs without trimming space, reduce square size by 1/2".
Step 1.Make the half square triangles (HST). Lay a white 5 7/8" square on a color fabric 5 7/8" square right sides together. Mark a diagonal line along the squares, then sew 1/4" from both sides of the line.
Cut along the line, then press open and trim to measure 5" square.
Repeat with the remaining 5 7/8" squares to make a total of 12 HSTs.
Step 2. Make the center of the block. Referring to the next few photos, sew together the 16 - 2 3/4" squares.
Step 3. Referring to the next 4 photos, sew together the previously constructed pieces to assemble the block.
