Here are the pieces you need for this block. Oops, I included an extra cream square….

Start by making all of your half square triangles first. I trimmed some extra half square triangles to make this block.  If you’ve got some that will work, trim those to 2 ½” square.  Lay out your pieces and sew into rows. Iron the middle row toward the center square.  Iron the top and bottom row away from the middle.  Sew the rows together and iron. 


Sorry for the delay in getting Triangle Thursday posted.  The snow and no power made it hard to sew the block yesterday! Enjoy and see you next Thursday for Triangle Thursday. 

Happy Quilting
