RSC Sampler - Split Nine Patch

This one is super scrappy and an excellent way to use up those extra half square triangle blocks that keep showing up.  It is on a nine patch grid (of course) and so will use 2.5 inch (unfinished) subunits.
You will need
3 - 2.5 inch squares of assorted dark fabric
3 - 2.5 inch squares of assorted light fabric.
3 - 2.5 inch HST units cut from a light and a dark fabric placed right sides together.
Sew the HST units along the long side of the triangle and press toward the dark fabric.  You will now have nine 2.5 inch squares all together.
Line the HST units up along the center diagonal with the dark sides all facing toward the bottom and right of the block.
Fill the light squares in along the top and the dark on the bottom.
Sew together as a nine patch.
Press and enjoy!
