1. Sew a gray print small triangle to a short edge of a black tone-on-tone medium triangle (Diagram 1). Press seam toward small triangle. Add a second gray print small triangle to adjacent short edge of black tone-on-tone medium triangle to make a gray Flying Geese unit. Press as before. The unit should be 4-1/2x2-1/2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make four gray Flying Geese units total.
2. Using gold print small triangles, repeat Step 1 to make four gold Flying Geese units.
3. Sew together a gold print small triangle and a black tone-on-tone small triangle to make a triangle-square (Diagram 2). Press seam toward black tone-on-tone. The triangle-square should be 2-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make eight triangle-squares total.
4. Referring to Diagram 3, sew together two triangle-squares and two black tone-on-tone 2-1/2" squares in pairs. Press seams toward black tone-on-tone. Join pairs to make a bow tie unit. Press seam in one direction. The unit should be 4-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four bow tie units total.
5. Referring to Diagram 4, sew a black tone-on-tone small triangle to each end of a gold Flying Geese unit. Press seams toward Flying Geese unit. Then add a black tone-on-tone medium triangle to one long edge of the gold Flying Geese unit to make a pieced triangle. Press seam toward black tone-on-tone medium triangle. Repeat to make four pieced triangles total.
6. Referring to Diagram 5, sew olive green print large triangles to short edges of a pieced triangle to make a side unit. Press seams toward olive green print. The side unit should be 8-1/2x4-1/2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make four side units total.
