Re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 1, layer 2 match­ing strips wrong sides to­gether; cut 2 each E and re­verse E (ER) pieces us­ing pre­pared tem­plate. Re­peat with all strips to cut a to­tal of 32 each E and ER pieces. • Cut 2 (21/2" x 10") strips from each square. Sub­cut strips into 4 (21/2" x 41/2") B rec­tan­gles each fab­ric for a to­tal of 64 B rec­tan­gles.

From white spaced tiny print:

• Cut 1 (21/2" by fab­ric width) strip.

Sub­cut strip into 16 (21/2") C squares. • Cut 6 (17/ by fab­ric width) strips. Again re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 1, layer 2 strips wrong sides to­gether to cut 11 each D and re­verse D (DR) pieces us­ing pre­pared tem­plate. Re­peat with all strips to cut a to­tal of 32 each D and DR pieces.

From turquoise tonal:

• Cut 1 (11/2" by fab­ric width) strip.

Sub­cut strip into 9 (11/2") G squares. • Cut 6 (21/4" by fab­ric width) bind­ing strips.

From white tonal:

• Cut 10 (27/ by fab­ric width) strips. Sub­cut strips into 128 (27/ squares. Cut each square in half on 1 di­ag­o­nal to make 256 A tri­an­gles.

From cream print:

• Cut 1 (101/2" by fab­ric width) strip.

Sub­cut strip into 24 (11/2" x 101/2") F strips. • Cut 5 (51/2" by fab­ric width) H/I strips.

COM­PLET­ING THE BLOCKS

1. Sew an A triangle to one short and one long side of D to make an A-D unit as shown in Fig­ure 2; press. Re­peat to make 32 A-D units. Re­peat with DR pieces to make 32 A-DR units, again re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 2.

2. Re­peat step 1 with E and ER pieces to make 32 each A-E and A-ER units (16 match­ing pairs each) as shown in Fig­ure 3.

3. Select two A-D units and two match­ing A-ER units. Join one each unit to make a quar­ter unit as shown in Fig­ure 4; press. Re­peat to make a sec­ond quar­ter unit.

4. Re­peat step 3 with A-DR units and match­ing A-E units to make two re­verse quar­ter units as shown in Fig­ure 5; press.

5. Join one each quar­ter unit and re­verse quar­ter unit with B to make the top row as shown in Fig­ure 6; press. Re­peat to make the bot­tom row.

6. Sew C be­tween two B rec­tan­gles to make the cen­ter row as shown in Fig­ure 7; press.

7. Sew the cen­ter row be­tween the top and bot­tom rows to com­plete one To the Point block as shown in Fig­ure 8; press. 8. Re­peat steps 3–7 to com­plete a to­tal of 16 To the Point blocks.
