Please read through all the instructions before starting.....

Subcut FOUR of the remaining five strip sets of 1 1/2" LIGHT and 1 1/2" LIGHT/MEDIUM strips into 12 1/2" lengths. You will need 12. Subcut the remaining strip set into 2 1/2" lengths. You will need 16. Set these aside.

You will need 12 of these.

You will need 16 of these.

Subcut the 2 1/2" strips of FOCUS fabric into 2 1/2" squares. You will need a total of 60. Set aside 36 squares. Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of each of the remaining 24 squares. Lay a square on each end of the 12 1/2" strips cut above. Stitch on the diagonal line, fold back and press. Trim inside layers, if desired, to reduce bulk. (I trim the FOCUS fabric layer.) Make sure the diagonal lines are placed so that the long side of the triangle covers the LIGHT fabric, as shown.

From the 2 7/8" LIGHT/MEDIUM strip, cut 2 squares, 2 7/8". Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of each square. Place one square of LIGHT/MEDIUM on each 2 7/8" FOCUS fabric cut earlier, right sides together. Sew a scant 1/4" on each side of the drawn line. Cut apart on the drawn line, open up, and press towards the FOCUS fabric. Trim out the inside layers, if desired, to reduce bulk. You should have four half square triangles.

Using the units pieced above, make TWO each of the following strips:

This completes step 3!
