One charm trimmed to 4 1/2" for the centre.
(4) 2 1/2" squares of colour fabric
(12) 4 1/2" x 2 1/2" rectangles of various colours (or all the same colour if you want)
(28) 2 1/2" squares of background colour…. I am using white again.
To Make the Four Corner Units
Make (4) 2 1/2" half triangle squares using the 4 colour and 4 of the background 2 1/2" squares (as in the picture below).
Make a corner unit using one 2 1/2" background square, one half square triangle and one of the 4 1/2" x 2 1/2" unit you just made. Be careful of the orientation again. There should be 2 of one direction and 2 of the opposite direction. See the pictures.
Make 3 more for a total of 4 corner units.
Make 4 Center Side Units
Each centre unit uses two 4.5 x 2.5 colour rectangles and (4) 2.5-inch background blocks marked on the diagonal. Place a background square on each end of the rectangle with the diagonal going the same way. Sew. The next rectangle you will have to have the diagonal going the opposite direction. See the diagram for confirmation. Kind of confusing…but you can do it. If you press your seams toward the centre for one section and to the background for the next section, they will lock together beautifully. Sew together and press seam open.
Repeat three more times.
Lay out all the units as shown in the picture and sew together.
