Instruction Diagram
Step 1: Sew one B triangle to one D triangle along one short side to make a triangle unit. Press seam toward the dark fabric. Repeat with 6 more B & D triangles.
Step 2: Sew one D triangle to one B triangle along one short side, BUT make it a mirror image of the triangle units in Step 1. Press seam toward the dark fabric.
Step 3: Sew two of these B/D triangle units together to make a square (with 4 triangles in it). Repeat this step so you have three squares. (Section 1) Press seams open.
Step 4: Sew one light A triangle to each of the remaining two B/D triangle units (These should be a mirror image of each other) Press seams open. (Section 2)

Step 6: Sew three Section 1 squares together. See diagram. Press seams toward the middle square.
