Yes, another triangle. Block number 200!

Print or trace the block diagram onto foundation paper, number, and cut out as in the photo.
Foundation piece each numbered section and trim the seam allowances to 1/4". Note that the top kite and melon are not pieced.
Sew the three center sections together.
Attach the top and bottom sections.
Print or trace the top block section onto the dull side of freezer paper and cut out the kite and melon shapes.
Iron this template to the right side of the block, lining up the seam lines.
Cut the melon and kite out of the fabric, leaving a small seam allowance. Clip the sharp corners and inside curves.
Cut a 3" x 3.5" rectangle out of main block fabric and lay it right side up on the table.
Place the block right side up on top of it.
Baste through all layers.
Turning under the seam allowances, reverse applique the kite and melon.
Trim the block to size, using the freezer paper as a guide.
Remove the freezer paper and press.
