Assemble Tree Blocks


1. Using a pencil, mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each blue-and-white polka dot 2-1⁄2" square.

2. Align a marked blue-and-white polka dot square with one end of a green print 2-1⁄2x4-1⁄2" rectangle. Stitch on marked line. Trim seam allowance to 1⁄4". Press attached triangle open, pressing seam toward green print (Diagram 1).

3. In same manner, align a second marked blue-and-white polka dot square with remaining end of Step 2 green print rectangle. Stitch, trim, and press as before to make a Flying Geese unit (Diagram 1). The Flying Geese unit should be 4-1⁄2x2-1⁄2" including seam allowances.

4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make 28 Flying Geese units total (10 from one green print and nine from each of the other two green prints).

5. Referring to Diagram 2, join two blue-and-white polka dot 2x2-1⁄2" rectangles and a dark brown print 1-1⁄2x2-1⁄2" rectangle to make a short stem unit. Press seams toward dark brown print. The short stem unit should be 4-1⁄2x2-1⁄2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make six short stem units total.

6. Referring to Diagram 3, join two blue-and-white polka dot 2x4-1⁄2" rectangles and a dark brown print 1-1⁄2x4-1⁄2" rectangle to make a tall stem unit. Press as in Step 5. The tall stem unit should be 4-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make three tall stem units total.

7. Referring to Diagram 4, sew together three matching Flying Geese units and a tall stem unit to make a tree block A. Press all seams open. Tree block A should be 4-1⁄2x10-1⁄2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make three total of tree block A.

8. Referring to Diagram 5, sew together one blue-and-white polka dot 2-1⁄2x4-1⁄2" rectangle, three matching Flying Geese units, and a tall stem unit to make a tree block B. Press all seams open. Tree block B should be 4-1⁄2x10-1⁄2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make five total of tree block B.

9. Referring to Diagram 6, sew together remaining four matching Flying Geese units and a short stem unit to make tree block C. Press all seams open. Tree block C should be 4-1⁄2x10-1⁄2" including seam allowances.
