**Salmon:**Cut SIX (6) 2 7/8″ squares. (These are paired with the Lt. Blue 2 7/8″ squares which will create TWELVE (12) Half=Square Triangles. FOUR (4) of these Half-Square Triangles are the FOUR (4) corners of this quilt block.)**Salmon:**Cut FOUR (4) 4 7/8″ squares. Then cut the squares diagonally, corner-to-corner, ONE (1) time. You’ll end up with TWO (2) triangles per square. (These will flank the results of the White 5 1/4″ square, which will create ONE (1) Square in a Square, as needed to sew this quilt block together.)**Lt. Blue:**Cut SIX (6) 2 7/8″ squares. On the back side of the squares draw a diagonal line, corner-to-corner, ONE (1) time. (These are paired with the Salmon 2 7/8″ squares which will create TWELVE (12) Half=Square Triangles. FOUR (4) of these Half-Square Triangles are the FOUR (4) corners of this quilt block.)**Lt. Blue:**Cut ONE (1) 4 1/2″ square. (This is the center of this quilt block.

(These are paired with the Lt. Blue/Salmon Half-Square Triangles as needed to sew this quilt block together.)**White:**Cut ONE (1) 5 1/4″ square. Then cut the square diagonally, corner-to-corner, TWO (2) times. You’ll end up with FOUR (4) triangles. (These triangles will flank the Lt.
