1. Referring to Diagram 2, sew together five Nine-Patch units and four red bird print 3-1/2" squares in three rows. Press seams toward squares. Join rows to make a dark Double Nine-Patch block. Press seams in one direction. The block should be 9-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make three dark Double Nine-Patch blocks total.
2. Using tan print 3-1/2" squares instead of red bird print, repeat Step 1 to make a light Double Nine-Patch block (Diagram 3). Repeat to make six light Double Nine-Patch blocks total.
