• Basic sewing tools and supplies From white-with-black print:
• Cut 1 (181/2" by fabric width) strip. Subcut strip into 1 (181/2" x 271/2") A rectangle, 1 (37/ 8") L square, 14 (11/2" x 3") J/JR rectangles and 2 (11/2") K squares. Cut the L square in half on 1 diagonal to make 2 L triangles. From gray tonal:
• Cut 4 (21/2" by fabric width) strips. Subcut strips into 2 each 21/2" x 141/2" R, 21/2" x 121/2" Q, 21/2" x 101/2" P, 21/2" x 81/2" O, 21/2" x 61/2" N and 21/2" x 41/2" M rectangles, and 4 (21/2") I squares.
• Cut 4 (21/4" by fabric width) binding strips.
COMPLETING THE PIECED SECTIONS
1. Referring to Figure 1, mark 11/2" down from the top left corner on the wrong side of a J rectangle. Draw a diagonal line from the mark to the top right corner. Repeat to mark a total of 12 J rectangles. Repeat to mark two JR rectangles, measuring from the top right corner and marking to the top left corner.
2. Referring to Figure 2, place a marked J rectangle right sides together on one end of an M rectangle and stitch on the marked line. Trim seam allowance to 1/4" and press J to the right side to make a J-M unit. Repeat to make a second J-M unit.
3. Repeat step 2 with the remaining marked J rectangles and N–R rectangles to make two of each unit as shown in Figure 3.
4. Join one of each pieced unit and add L to the J-M end to make a triangle unit as shown in Figure 4; press. Repeat to make a second triangle unit.
5. Repeat step 2 with a marked JR rectangle on one end of E to complete an E-JR unit as shown in Figure 5; press.
6. Join the E-JR unit with an I square and an F rectangle to make a green strip as shown in Figure 6; press.
7. Sew the green strip to one triangle unit, matching the I square with the end of M as shown in Figure 7.
8. Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of the K squares. Repeat step 2 with K on one corner of B to make a B-K unit as shown in Figure 8; press. Repeat to make a second unit.
9. Sew C between two I squares and add a B-K unit to each end to complete a pink strip as shown in Figure 9; press.
10. Sew the pink strip to the green strip on the triangle unit from step 7 to complete the pink/green unit, matching the I squares and one end of the pink and green strips as shown in Figure 10; press.
11. Sew the remaining JR rectangle to G as in step 5 to make a G-JR unit as shown in Figure 11.
12. Join the G-JR unit with I and add H to complete a blue strip as shown in Figure 12.
13. Sew the blue strip to the second triangle unit to complete the blue unit, matching the I square with M as shown in Figure 13; press.
14. Place the straightedge with the 45-degree-angle line on the blue unit with one long edge aligned with the edge of the L triangle and the 45-degreeangle line on the blue short edge of the unit as shown in Figure 14. Trim excess from each unit, again referring to Figure 14. Repeat to trim the pink/ green unit.
