Size: 7 1/2" unfinished, 7" finished.

Materials: Light and dark fabric. 1/4 yard of each will make more then one block, but not a whole quilt.

Directions: From dark fabric cut one 2 1/2" square and two 2 7/8" squares. From light fabric cut four 2 1/2" squares and two 2 7/8" squares.

Method 1: Using the 2 7/8" squares. On the light fabric make a line diagonally from corner to corner. Takeing a light and a dark 2 7/8" square right sides together sew 1/4" from both sides of line you've drawn. (This is for both sets), Cut diagonally on your drawn line. You now have all four of the 1/2 square triangles.

Method 2: Using the 2 7/8" squares, Cut both the light and dark diagonally making a two triangles from each. Sew a light to a dark being careful not to stretch fabric (this is a bias edge).

Using diagram above put square together.
