To start, make the four-patch units. Grab red and white jelly strips and stitch them together with a 1/4″ seam allowance, then press open. Make two of these. Once done, lay the two together on the right side, then cut 2 1/2″ strips. After this, sew these pairs together to make the four-patch units. Now, make the half-square triangles. Grab one white 5″ square, fold it corner to corner to make a crease, then open it. Next, lay one red 5″ square over it, then bring it to the sewing machine. Sew a 1/4″ seam on either side of the crease line. Cut it in half, press it open, and then square it up.
Now, assemble the block. First row: four-patch, half-square, four-patch, second row: half-square, four-patch, half-square, third row: four-patch, half-square, four-patch. Make sure to line up the blocks according to their color. Once done, sew them in rows, then sew those rows together to complete the block.
