Piece E … two 2 7/8″ squares, cut once diagonally to make half-square triangles.
Step 1. In preparation for adding set-in patches, mark match points on wrong side of rotary cut patches (1B, 2D, 2DR, 3D) in the following manner. Using see-through acrylic ruler, make cross hairs in each corner by drawing a short line 1/4” from each raw edge at corner. Referring to Diagram I-A, stitch patch 1B to 3D, back stitching at match point. Add patch 2DR to make pieced unit. Repeat, replacing patch 2DR with 2D to make second pieced unit.

Step 2. Stitch patch 1A to 2 pieced units, back stitching at match points (Diagram I-B). Add patch 4E to make corner unit (Diagram I-C). Make 4.
