9.5 x 9.5 unfinished
 
Needed:
Dark, medium and light coordinated fabrics
DARK fabric- One 3.5 x 3.5 square for center square and four 2 3/8 squares to use in making your flying geese.
MEDIUM fabric - Four 3.5 x 3.5 HSTs using BACKGROUND and MEDIUM fabric,
LIGHT fabric - (Background / BG) - Four 2 x 3.5 rectangles
One 4.25 x 4.25 square


This block looks difficult but when broken down it is not hard and looks great.

Use the background and small Dark fabric squares to make your flying geese. (See directions below or used whatever method you use to make them)

Forming the first part
Forming the first part
Place your Flying Geese on top of the 2 “x 3.5” rectangles with the BG fabric pointing toward the center.(see photo)

Sew together.
Lay out your 3.5” blocks as in photo. Sew your blocks together.

Sew your rows
together to complete your block.

HOW TO MAKE FLYING GEESE - On the wrong side of the small dark squares mark a diagonal line from corner to corner This will be your cutting line. Mark a quarter inch on both sides of this line, they will be your sewing lines.

Place two small squares on opposite corners of the large BG square. The corners will overlap slightly (see photo)!. Sew along the OUTSIDE lines. Cut along center line. Press seams toward small triangles.

Place remaining small squares on the unit corners (see photo). Sew along outside lines. Cut along center line. Press seams toward small triangles to complete four Flying Geese.

TIP - Make your squares 1/8 bigger than needed to be able to trim to exact size.

This method works for any size Flying Geese unit. Cut the small squares 7/8” larger than the finished height and the large square 1 1/4” larger than the finished width
