Start Square Week 1 - Assembly Option 4

Tonal Concentric Squares

Like yesterday's option, this one uses 2 colors instead of background and feature fabrics. I had some gray pieces already cut and sewn from my red & aqua option, so I'm adding orange to those! This stack kinda reminds me of Halloween. :)
Stash week 2-4

You will sew together 2 13" squares that are the same color, then cut them apart as in the block tutorial. I opted to work with 6.5" squares (cut my 13" squares into 4 pieces) so that I could get more variety in which prints were next to each other. I'm picky, have you noticed? The directions for using 6.5" squares are also on the block tutorial page

orange grey baby
* For a 34" x 34" baby quilt you will need 24 triangles of the main color (6 - 13" squares sewn into 3 pairs and cut into 24 triangles) and 12 triangles of your second color (4 - 13" squares sewn into 2 pairs and cut into 16 triangles, leaving you with 4 extra triangles).

orange grey
* For a 46" x 46" lap quilt you will need 24 triangles of one color (6 - 13" squares sewn into 3 pairs and cut into 24 triangles) and 40 triangles of your second color (10 - 13" squares sewn into 5 pairs and cut into 40 triangles).

Assembly
Take 1 triangle from each color and sew them together along the longest side (hypotenuse). 

For a baby quilt you will need 12 of these. 
For a lap quilt you will need 24. 

This quilt will be assembled in diagonal rows. See the diagrams below.

* I didn't have all of the orange washed so I couldn't get my actual example laid out. It's been a long week! I'll swap out the pictures when I have my actual quilt to show. *
