- Two (2) 49-1/8” by 1-1/2” strips from fabric G.
- Four (4) 60” by 3-1/2” strips from fabric H.
For each block 1:
- Piece alternate 2-1/2” squares from fabrics A and B until you have five together, as shown in BLOCK 1 Diagram. Make another like this.
- Join together two fabric B 4-1/2” by 2-1/2” strips with one fabric A 2-1/2” square in the middle. Piece the block, inserting two fabric E strips in the middle as shown in the BLOCK1 Diagram. Make 8 Blocks.
For each block 2:
- Draw a vertical line in the center of the fabric D strip (having the strip positioned horizontal in front of you). Now, draw a diagonal line on the same strip from one corner to the matching top vertical line of the strip, as if you were doing a flying goose unit. Draw another diagonal line on the opposite side, (revealing a triangle). These will be your sewing lines.
- Place a triangle from fabric F on top of one half of the fabric D strip, aligning one short line of the triangle with the vertical line. Sew, diagonally, 1/4” inside the longest edge line of the triangle. Flip the other fabric F triangle and sew it on the opposite side of the same strip in the same way. You will have a flying goose unit but made with rectangles instead of squares (as shown in BLOCK 2 Diagram). Make another unit like this.
- For the center unit of the block, piece consecutively one strip from fabric G, one from fabric C and one from fabric G.
- Join the units together following the BLOCK 2 Diagram. Trim “dog ears”. Make 4 Blocks.
For each block 3:
- Piece together two quarter square triangles from fabric B making a bigger triangle, (as shown in BLOCK 3 Diagram). Make four units like this.
- Now, join together four squares from fabric F as if a four patch block.
- Sew each fabric B unit to each side of the fabric F unit. Trim “dog ears”. Make 1 Block.
For each side triangle:
- Sew one fabric C 3-3/8” half square triangle to the shorter side of a fabric F strip and later to one fabric C 3” square.
- Sew one fabric C 5-7/8” half square triangle to the longest side of a fabric F strip.
- Finish adding another fabric C 3-3/8” half square triangle on the corner (as shown in the diagram). Make 8 units.
For each corner triangle:
- Sew one fabric C 3-3/8” half square triangle to the shorter side of a fabric F strip and later to another fabric C 3-3/8” half square triangle.
- Finish adding another fabric C 6-1/4” quarter square triangle on the corner (as shown to the right). Make 4 units.
For the center:
- Sew two fabric C small triangles to the ends of one fabric G strip. Follow adding the units for the second row as shown in the picture, alternating between the blocks and the sashing.
- Complete all the rows in the same way. Then, piece all the rows together as shown in the picture.
- Add the four corner units at the end.
For the inner border:
- Join enough fabric G strips in order to make a 49-1/8” strip. Make another long strip like this. Sew them along the remaining sides of the top with a 1/4” seam allowance. Press open.
For the outer border:
- Join, enough fabric H strips to make a 60” strip. Make another three strips like this.
- Sew them along the four sides of the top with mitered corners and with a 1/4” seam allowance. Press open.
Layer, quilt and single bind (1-1/2” strips) with fabric G as desired.
