The perimeter Indian Hatchet blocks are sewn in exactly the same way as the central blocks, but in two different fabric combinations (Figure 6). Mark all small squares on their front sides as before, and pair all squares with their partners using the same method as for the first 24 blocks. Be sure to continue sewing stacks together with backing sides touching. Make:

  • Four blocks with two black corners
  • Twenty blocks with one black and one gold corner
