Hill and Valley #46

Let's do one with less pieces to break it up.  This has half as many pieces as the last one.

Color #1 (blue)
4 - 3" finished half squares (3 1/2" strip with the easy angle)
4- triangles cut with Companion angle and 1 1/2" strip

Color #2 (orange)
2 - 1 7/8" squares
4 - 2" finished half square triangles (cut with 2 1/2" strip and the Easy Angle)
2- triangles cut with Companion angle and 1 1/2" strip

 Sew 2 of the quarter square units together by lining up the short edge of the Color 1 small triangle with the color 2 squares

Sew the remaining quarter squares together.
This is an unusual shaped hourglass.  Add a color 2 Triangle to both sides of the unit.

Measure the unit with the companion angle.  It should line up with the 3 1/2" line on the companion angle (which is 6" finished base size)Square up with the companion angle if necessary
Now you just have 2 large flying geese units. Join the remaining color 1 triangles to make two 3 1/2" X 6 1/2" rectangle. 

Join the rectangles to complete the block measuring 6 1/2"
