Sewing Instructions:

Step 1: With a ruler and rotary cutter, cut the Purple 5-1/4" square twice diagonally to create four triangles.  Repeat with the green 5-1/2" square.

Step 2: With a pencil and a ruler, draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the back of twelve  Purple 2-1/2" squares.

Step 3: With a ruler and rotary cutter, cut each Orange 4-7/8" squares once diagonally to create two triangles. Four orange triangles made.

    

Step 4: Layer a marked Purple 2-1/2" square on the upper right corner of a Green 4-1/2" square, right sides together.  Sew along the line that you drew in Step 2.  Trim away excess fabric 1/4" above the seam and press the seam allowance toward the Purple fabric.  Repeat in the upper left corner.  Make 4.  

    

 

Step 5: Layer a marked Purple 2-1/2" square on the upper right corner of the Orange 4-1/2" square, right sides together.  Sew along the line that you drew in Step 2.  Repeat in the lower left corner.  Trim away excess fabric 1/4" above the seam and press the seam allowance toward the Purple fabric.  Repeat in the upper left corner and the lower right corner.  Make 1.
