BLOCK CONSTRUCTION

Step 1. Gather together one Fabric D 7-1/4" x 7-1/4" square and four 3-7/8" x 3-7/8" Fabric A squares. Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of all four Fabric A squares.
Step 2. Take 2 Fabric A squares and place them RST in opposite corners of the Fabric D square (they will overlap a little). Stitch a scant 1/4" away from either side of the line.
Step 3. Cut block apart on drawn line and press towards Fabric A.
Step 4. Place another Fabric A square from Step 1 and place it in the corner of one of the unit from Step 3. Stitch a scant 1/4" away from either side of the line. Cut apart on drawn
line and press towards Fabric A. Trim dog ears and square block up to 3-1/2" x 6-1/2" if necessary. Repeat with remaining Fabric A square from Step 1 and remaining unit from Step 3 to yield a total of 4 flying geese that measure 3-1/2" x 6-1/2".
Step 5. Repeat Steps 1-4 with all remaining Fabric A 3-7/8" squares to make a total of forty AD flying geese.
Step 6. Repeat Steps 1-4 with all Fabric C 3-7/8" x 3-7/8" squares and the remaining Fabric D 7-1/4" x 7-1/4" squares to create a total of 40 CD flying geese.
Step 7. Sew an AD flying geese unit to either side of a 6-1/2" x 6-1/2" Fabric A square noting fabric and unit orientation. Press towards the Fabric A square. Repeat to make ten blocks like this.
Step 8. Repeat Step 7 using the CD flying geese and Fabric C 6-1/2" x 6-1/2" squares. Make ten blocks. Press towards Fabric C.
Step 9. Sew a 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" Fabric D square to either end of a AD flying geese unit. Press seams towards Fabric D. Repeat to make a total of 20 units.
Step 10. Sew a 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" Fabric D square to either end of a CD flying geese unit. Press seams towards Fabric D. Repeat to make a total of 20 units.

Step 12. Sew a Step 10 unit to either side of a Step 8 unit noting orientation. Press seams open. Repeat to make ten blocks. Label as Block B.
Step 13. Gather together five 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" Fabric C squares and four 1-1/2" x 12-1/2" Fabric B Strips. To make a sashing row, sew the strips together, placing a 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" Fabric C square between each pair and one at each end. Press seams towards the Fabric B strips. Repeat to make six sashing rows.
Step 14. Using the diagram below as a guide sew the blocks into rows alternating Block As and Block Bs and placing a sashing strip between blocks and at the beginning and end of each row.
