Print your HRT both the reverse and the "straight" version, and your squares (if you are not just cutting them).

Keep the reversed and the straight HRTriangles separate for now.
Cut apart.
Trim the long end of each HRTriangle on the line provided.
Make 4 sets of Rectangles, using one focus- and one background-fabric HRTriangle for each.
Make 4 sets of reversed Rectangles, using one focus- and one background-fabric HRTriangle for each.

Lay out your block.
