Size the half square triangles to 1 1/2″ each. Make 16.

Mark the back of the 1 1/2″ white squares diagonally from corner to corner. Lay the 1 1/2″ white square in the corner of the 2 1/2″ dark purple square. Sew on the drawn line. Cut 1/4″ on the outside of the drawn line. Press. Repeat for the other three corners.
