- From dark - cut 1, 5 1/4 inch square. Sub-cut this square diagonally into 4 small triangles.
- From light - cut 1, 5 1/4 inch square. Sub-cut this square diagonally into 4 small triangles.
- From darkest fabric
- cut 8, 4 ½ x 2 ½ inch rectangles for middle edge blocks
- cut 4, 1 7/8 inch squares for center block
- From lightest fabric
- cut 2, 5 1/4 inch squares; sub cut them on the diagonal into 4 large triangles for corner blocks.
- cut 5, 1 7/8 inch square for center block
- cut 16, 2 ½ inch squares for middle edge blocks.
Middle Edge block - Each edge block is made of two flying goose blocks
- Draw a diagonal line on wrong side of all lightest 2 ½ inch squares. (There should be 16)
- Align 2 ½ square with a corner of a rectangle of darkest fabric with right sides together and the drawn line parallel to the corner.
- Sew on diagonal line.
- Fold lightest fabric back so piece is a 2 ½ x 4 ½ inch rectangle with a light corner. There should be three pieces of fabric meeting in one corner. Iron.
- Do this a second time on the corner adjacent along the long edge of the rectangle.
- Leaving a 1/4 inch seam allowance, trim excess fabric from back of block.
- Ta-da! You just made a goose. Now make 7 more.
- Sew two goose blocks together, with dark triangles pointing in the same direction (Point to long edge.) This completes one edge block. Make 3 more.
- row 1& 3 - corner square with light & dark side on the outside edge; middle edge block with geese pointing up; corner square with light & dark side on the outside edge.
- row 2 - middle edge block with geese pointing to the left; background square; middle edge block with geese pointing to the right.
- Assemble rows so that same fabrics are touching to make one 12 ½ inch block (actual size, including future seam allowances.)
