**General Description:**This block is made from four small triangles with two of them the same color. When placed in the edge position on a Quilty Friends block the same colored triangles will either create an on point square around the center block, or better yet points to an eight pointed arrow.

**Cutting Directions:**to make 4 blocks, for a total of 16 pieces

- White -
- Cut 1, 5 1/4 square.
- Sub-cut this diagonally twice into 4 small triangles. .

- Blue -
- Cut 2, 5 1/4 inch squares.
- Sub-cut these diagonally twice into 4 small triangles each for a total of 8 small triangles.

- Red -
- Cut 1, 5 1/4 inch square.
- Sub-cut this diagonally twice into 4 small triangles.

**Piecing directions:**

- With right sides together, sew 4 small blue triangles to small white triangles making 8 large triangles. Sew them with the same orientation each time.
- Being careful not to warp the triangles, iron seams toward the white fabric. The finished large triangles should be identical.
- Sew 4 small blue triangles to small red triangles. Again, you want each set to look just like the one before it.
- Being careful not to warp the triangles, iron seams toward the red fabric. The finished large triangles should be identical.
- Snuggling seam allowances together (they should be going in opposite directions) and pinning at seam, sew large triangles, in pairs, to create 4, 4 ½ inch squares. These squares should have an “hour glasses” of blue fabric. The other two sides of the squares should not match each other.
- Being careful not to warp the triangles, pop center stitch and iron seams in a spiral. All 4 squares should be identical.
- Trim squares to 4 ½ inches.
