Step 1

Download and print the pattern, then cut the fabrics according to the instructions, and then start piecing the half-square triangles. Grab the large background and dark print square, then lay them with their right sides facing, and draw a line at the back diagonally from corner to corner.

Step 2

Stitch them on either side of the line with ¼ inch seam allowance, then press the seams towards the darker fabric, and continue to make the rest of the half-square triangles. Get 2 each of the small light and background squares, then assemble them alternately to form the 4-patch block, and stitch them by pair.

Step 3

Press the seams toward the darker fabric, then stitch the pairs to each other, and press the seams nicely. Make the rest of the 4-patch blocks, then assemble the blocks as shown in the video, and start stitching them per row. Give the seams a good press, then stitch the rows to each other, and give them a final press.
