STEP ONE. Sort charm squares and remove the prints with low contrast against background fabric. Select 50 high contrast charm squares and save the rest for another project. Cut (5) 4" x WOF strips from sashing fabric. Subcut into (25) 4" x 7½" rectangles.

STEP TWO. Use a pencil to mark diagonal lines on each background square. Pair each background square with a print square, right sides together. Sew ¼" seam on each side of the diagonal pencil line. Cut along marked line. Press toward the print. Repeat to make 100 half square triangles. Keep matching prints together.
