1. Fabric 4 – Cut 2 – 3-7/8″ strips. Cut these into 12 – 3-7/8″ squares. Cut these on the diagonal once so you have 24 triangles.
2. Fabric 5 – Cut 4 – 2″ strips. Cut these into 24 – 2″ x 5-5/8″ rectangles.
3. Fabric 5 – Cut 5 – 2″ strips. Cut these into 24 – 2″ x 7-1/8″ rectangles.
4. Using the same method as in Instructions #5, make 24 of the units shown below.
5. Sew these units to the sides to complete the block. Make 12. (See Note Below)
NOTE: If you will make a mark in the center of the Fabric 4 triangle, then you can align that mark with the edge of the four patch to make sure everything is straight.
Also, when sewing these units to the units made Thursday, be sure there’s a 1/4″ seam allowance so you don’t chop off your points when you begin sewing these blocks to the other blocks.
None of this is “hard” but it may take a bit of patience and pinning to get it correct. There are some bias edges there, make them work to your benefit.

Call me crazy, but I love this pattern so much that I am making it twice! I’m making an extra long twin for my cousin who is going to Ashland University in the late summer/fall and I have to have it ready for her dorm move in date.
I liked the teal and tan version that you showed that I showed it to my mom in hopes that she would love it, too. Well, she loves the pattern, but wants a king size quilt for her bed so I have to make it in palm tree colors…
I just printed out the steps so far and I hope to get started on my cousin’s quilt this weekend!

i too love this pattern and can totally see why you would make 2! i often do that with a mystery pattern and wish i would have done that with this one too. even though i got off to a late start, i got caught up quickly and the anticipation of each new step was really there for me. if i had two going i would have had the momentum to get both done. excellent quilt for a quilt along
