Download and print the pattern and cut the fabrics to size. Lay together a medium print square and background square with their right sides facing, then line the back diagonally, and stitch on either side of the line.


Step 2

Cut it in half and press the seams open, then cut off the nubs, and trim it off to 2 and 5/8 inches square. Repeat the same steps with the remaining medium print and background squares, then make half-square triangles with dark print squares as well.
