Create 16 Small Spinning Blocks

Cut 8 2.25" x 3.75" rectangles from each of your four colors. Tip: this is most easily done by cutting two strips from your remaining 1/4 yard color fabric: cut 2 3.75" strips. Then, cut the 3.75" strips into 2.25" wide pieces. See photo below.

Set out your 32 2.25" x 3.75" rectangles from background fabric.

Cut each rectangle diagonally from the lower left hand corner to the upper right hand corner. Do this for both the background fabric rectangles and the color rectangles.

For each placemat, you will have 4 color triangles in each color and 16 background triangles.

Stitch a background triangle to each color triangle.
