Sparkle - A Christmas Sew Along - Sewing Square in a Square Blocks

All right, you've got your fabrics picked, and all cut and you're ready to start sewing! YAY! 
Lets start by making the green square-in-a-square blocks! You will make four of these units per block, making a total of 36.
All seam allowances are 1/4"

Begin by sewing one 4 7/8" triangle to opposite sides of each of the green 6 1/4"x6 1/4" squares. Refer to the image above.

Press. I chose to press my fabrics toward the white on these units.
Next, sew a 4 7/8" triangle to the two remaining sides of the square-in-a-square unit. Press. After you have pressed, square up the block to 8 1/2"x8 1/2" square.

Put these 36 units aside, we will use them again in a couple days.
