Old Windmill

I'm not sure I understand the color placement in this block.  It is a basic half square block, but I tried several different color selections and none of them excited me.  I can't wait to see what colors you pick to prove me wrong.

#62 Old Windmill
This block is made of all 1 1/2" finished half squares, so everything is done with the Easy Angle and a 2" strip.

Background: Cut 16
Color 1,2,3,4: Cut 4 each

Pair each of the background triangles with a colored triangle to make a half square.  Press toward the color.  Square up each square to 2" if necessary.

Join the half squares together in pairs and then Join in 4 patches.  I pressed the 4 patch seams open.  Join the 4 patches together  to complete the 6 1/2" bloc

I can't wait to see your color choices.
