Dotted red-9pieces
Red solid-14pieces

Long strips of striped for the border-three inches width and measure the length after completing the square..
First cut a square of 4inches on a thick paper

Keep the square on the fabric and keep ready all the cut fabrics

First Take a Solid attach a dotted to it,followed by a solid and  half  triangle ofdotted
Second row start with dotted and a solid and half triangle of Dotted.
Now one solid and half dotted and a half dotted for the next row.
First attach all these rows.

Measure this triangle then cut the striped one of same size
Make a square by joining both.
Now make a strip of full printed first followed by HST  ofsolid with a print, continue adding like this four pieces and end it with HST  solid and a dotted.
