IMG_1682Block # 2 – Half Square Triangles

Materials
8 4” background squares
8 4” coloured squares (2 of each colour for my design)

Instructions.

1. On the wrong side of each background square draw a diagonal line from one corner to the opposite corner.IMG_1946
2. Lay each background square on top of coloured square (right sides together) so you have 8 pairs.
3. Sew ¼” inch from the line on you background square. Repeat for all squares.
