Half Square Triangles

Trim each Half Square Triangle to 2 1/2″ square. Make 6.

Repeat using the black 2″ squares and make 6.

Repeat with the white and red 3” squares. Trim each Half Square Triangle to 1 1/2” square. Make 2 (only one will be used).

Layout the Half Square Triangles into rows as shown below. Sew each row, then sew the rows together to complete the block.
