Peppermint Candy Block

I had this sneaky suspicion that this was my month to chose the block, but was afraid to look at the list because of my crafters' guilt, as I have yet to finish Mardie or Amy C.'s block.  I am very sorry, ladies.  It is my goal to be all caught up this weekend.

I have been pining to do a Pickle Dish quilt, but my current life style is not affording me the time for such a delightfully complicated quilt.  So, I've opted for something I can most likely finish. 
Here you have a very simple half-square triangle block that will grace my kitchen as a Christmas table runner.

You will need:
(2)  8" squares in red (feel free to use solids or small, simple, or ditsy prints with a red background, just so red is the main color you see- brighter/cherry/summery reds are my preference and please stay away from muted/burgundy/orangey reds
(2) 8" squares in Kona white

Create 4 half-square triangle blocks (using your favorite method) that look like this:
Press seam allowances to the dark. 
Sew them together like this:

Press long seam allowances open.
That is it.

Thank you so much!
