Assemble the Block

1. For accurate sewing lines, use a quilting pencil to mark each gold floral 2-1⁄2" square with a diagonal line on the wrong side of the fabric.

2. Align one marked gold floral 2-1⁄2" square with one end of a cream print 2-1⁄2×4-1⁄2" rectangle (Diagram 1; note the placement of the sewing line). Stitch on the marked line; trim the seam allowance to 1⁄4". Press open the attached gold floral triangle. Repeat the sewing with a second marked gold floral 2-1⁄2" square on the opposite end of the rectangle to make a Flying Geese unit (Diagram 2). Repeat to make a total of four Flying Geese units.

3. Sew a Flying Geese unit to opposite edges of the gold floral 4-1⁄2" square (Diagram 3). Press the seam allowances toward the gold floral square.

4. Add a cream print 2-1⁄2" square to each end of the remaining Flying Geese units. Press the seam allowances toward the cream print squares. Join these units to the remaining edges of the gold floral 4-1⁄2" square to make a block (Block Assembly Diagram). Press the seam allowances toward the gold floral square.
