The School Bell Has Rung Sampler Quilt~Along Part 4

Welcome Back!  Sorry for the extra few days it took for me to  
      **ring the bell** and continue with our lesson.

Today we are learning how to construct the Triple Triangle block. You will need a total of four Triple Triangles for the sampler quilt.


Begin by cutting:
2 yellow 6-1/2" x 7-1/2" rectangle
2 yellow 3-7/8" squares
2 blue 3-7/8" squares
4 blue 3-1/2" x 4-1/2" rectangles


Combine a yellow and blue 3-7/8" square right sides together. Draw a diagonal line corner to corner on the wrong side of the yellow square and sew 1/4" on either side of the drawn line.  Repeat for the remaining blue and yellow 3-7/8" squares.  Cut apart, yielding 4 half square triangles.

Sew each half square triangle to a blue 3-1/2" x 4-1/2" rectangle exactly as shown below.  
Place 2 of these sections right sides together with the yellow triangles pointing towards each other...as shown below.  
Sew the unit together. Repeat.

Clip the seam between the yellow triangles, pressing one side of the seam up and the other side down.

Now place the 45 degree angle of your ruler across the top of the unit so the ruler edge will line up exactly through the intersection of the yellow triangle tip and a corner of the unit.  Draw a line.
Turn the unit around and draw a second line.

 Place this unit right sides together with a yellow 6-1/2" x 7-1/2" rectangle.  Stitch directly on each drawn line.  Repeat with the remaining unit and yellow rectangle.

 I placed a few pins to avoid any shifting before sewing together.

Cut the unit(s) apart using a 1/4" seam allowance.

You will now have 4 Triple Triangle units for each corner of 
The School Bell Has Rung Sampler quilt.
Place the 4 Triple Triangles aside...and stay tuned for our next lesson!  Sewing Pinwheels, Flying Geese, Hourglass blocks and Triple Triangles together to create:
