Start by sewing your half square triangles on to the corners of the rectangles. Pay attention so the triangles, when sewn, are facing the correct directions.  Sew the squares together to make your four patch. 


Once you have the four patch finished, sew the pieces into rows. Then sew the rows together.  I ironed the top and bottom rows to the squares.  The center row was ironed toward the four patch. 



That’s it for today's Triangle Thursday.  I was tickled to have the blue waste triangles and still have yardage so I could do the squares.  I’m beginning to be over run with these little blocks.  I need to figure out something to do with some of them.  Happy Quilting!
