How to construct your quilt block

Step one: Draw a diagonal line on the reverse of one Fabric B rectangle, from bottom left to top right. Place RST on the left side of one Fabric C square. Trim through both fabrics, 14in away from the drawn line. Sew along the edge and press open.

Step two: Repeat with the remaining Fabric B rectangle, drawing the line from bottom right to top left. Trim and sew to the right side of the Fabric C square to create one triangle block. Trim to 312in square.

Step three: Create a second triangle block, using the remaining Fabric B rectangles and Fabric C square.

Step four: Sew both triangle blocks together.

Step five: Sew a 2in x 612in strip to each side of your center row.
