How to construct your quilt block

Step one: Sew one set of 812in long strips together along the long edges, in the following order.

Step two: With the Fabric B 2in x 812in strip, join the Fabric C 112in x 812in strip to the top. Then add the Fabric A 1in x 812in, Fabric C 1in x 812n, and Fabric B112in x 812in.

Step three: Draw a diagonal on the reverse of one Fabric A 312in square, from the bottom left to top right. Trim 14in away from the line. Discard the small triangle.

Step four: Place the trimmed Fabric A piece RST at the right hand side of your pieced strips, and sew on the diagonal line. Open out and press. Trim the pieced unit to 312in x 612in

Step five: Repeat the entire process with the remaining pieces, this time drawing the diagonal from bottom right to top left, and placing on the left side of the pieced strips.
