You will make 3 blocks.
First block.

Take one charm square and cut it in half.

Sew in a 1″ strip of the magenta fabric.

Now cut the block in half again, as shown in the image above.

Now sew a 1″ strip into the block, as shown in the image above. Repeat this process until you have 11 blocks.
Block two.

Cut the block in half.

Now sew a 1″ pink strip, as shown in the image above.

Now sew a 1″ pink strip to the top of the block.
Then trim the block down to 5″ as show in the image above.
Make 6 blocks like this.
You will also make 4 blocks with a 1″ white strip on the top.

Block three.

Cut the block 1.25″ from the left side.

Now you will add a 3/4″ magenta strip, as shown in the image above.

Measure from the left 1″ and add in a 3/4″ magenta strip, as shown in the image above.

Now you will turn the block and repeat this process.

The block should look like the one above when complete.
You will have 10 of these blocks.

Now you will add sashing.
Cut all sashing from the Bleached white material. You will cut the sashing 4.5″ width.

When I added my sashing I first add the horizontal pieces. Then the vertical strips.

I like to add my applique pieces  after the horizontal sashing is added but before I add the vertical strips.
