Making the Square-in-a-Square Unit:

2.) Fold four dark gray medium triangles and one 3” x 3” (7.6 x 7.6cm) pink or teal square in half and finger press to locate the center of each piece.

3.) Matching center folds, sew two dark gray medium triangles to opposite sides of the pink or teal square. Press seams toward the dark gray triangles.

5.) Press seams toward the dark gray triangles to make a Square-in-a-Square unit. Square and trim the unit to measure 4” x 4” (10.2 x 10.2cm). Make a total of 64 units

Making Card Trick Squares:

1.) Lay out the Card Trick square using two medium and two small triangles each of four different pink or teal prints. Add to the layout, four medium and four small assorted gray triangles, noting the placement of each triangle.

2.) To make a corner square, sew the pink or teal medium triangle to the medium gray triangle. Press seam toward the darker fabric. Make four corner squares. Square and trim each corner square to measure 4” x 4” (10.2 x 10.2cm). Place back into the layout.
