Making your block

Half-Square Triangles (total of 8 HST)

Use the 6″ Squares (in the 4 colours) to make two (2) sets of HST colors using method 1 in this tutorial. Note: you will land up with four (4) 3.5″ HST per color way.

Stripes (total of 8 Striped blocks)

The stripe blocks are very simple. In my block, I made two (2) of each alternating stripe blocks, mixing the order of the colored 1.5″ x 3.5″ strips with the white 1.5″ x 3.5″ strips.
