If you need help with the piecing you can download a free step-by-step tutorial from the Tutorials page or go direct to the pdf here.

You can have fun playing with the colourings of these triangles to create different effects. And, as with most of these Square in a Square blocks, the centre square allows you to play with ‘fussy-cutting’ large or bold prints.
