We're a little behind on triangles, I think.  Let's have a little triangle marathon...

Print or trace the block diagram onto foundation paper, number, and cut as in the photo.
Note that the top section of the triangle is not included here.
The lines on the section with the half circle have been extended to allow for foundation piecing.  We will applique the half circle on later.
Remember to change the block size to 5" x 8" if you're printing from the software.

Foundation piece all the numbered sections and trim the seam allowances to 1/4".

Complete the three block sections by sewing the two sections of each together.

Applique the little half circle.  Remember to add the seam allowance at the top so it can be sewn into the seam.

Sew the three pieced block sections together.

Create the top block section by appliqueing the two triangles.
When I did the Rainbow Jane block, I used regular applique and for this block reverse applique because I had trouble getting the point of the tall triangle sharp.
I'm not sure which is better.

Sew all the block sections together.
