Assemble Pieced Units

1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each black print 2-1⁄2" square.

2. Align a marked black print square with one end of an assorted print 2-1⁄2x4-1⁄2" rectangle (Diagram 1; note direction of marked line). Sew on marked line. Trim excess fabric, leaving 1⁄4" seam allowance. Press open attached triangle. In same manner, add a second marked black print square to opposite end of rectangle to make a Flying Geese unit. The unit should be 4-1⁄2x2-1⁄2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make 14 Flying Geese units total.
