Assemble A Blocks


1. Sew together two tan floral 1-1/2" squares and two red tone-on-tone 1-1/2" squares in pairs (Diagram 1). Press seams in opposite directions. Join pairs to make a center Four-Patch unit. Press seam in one direction. The unit should be 2-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four center Four-Patch units total.

2. Referring to Diagram 2, lay out four blue tone-on-tone 1-1/2" squares, four tan print 1-1/2x2-1/2" rectangles, and a center Four-Patch unit in three rows. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams toward rectangles. Join rows to make a small uneven Nine-Patch unit. Press seams in one direction. The unit should be 4-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four small uneven Nine-Patch units total.

3. Repeat Step 1 using two red print 1-1/2" squares, one blue-and-tan floral 1-1/2" square, and one red-and-tan print 1-1/2" square to make a small corner Four-Patch unit (Diagram 3). Repeat to make 16 small corner Four-Patch units total.

4. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of 32 blue floral 2-1/2" squares.

5. Align a marked blue floral square with one end of a red print 2-1/2x4-1/2" rectangle (Diagram 4; note direction of marked line). Sew on marked line; trim seam allowance to 1/4". Press open attached triangle, pressing seam toward blue floral triangle.

6. Align a second marked blue floral square with opposite end of Step 5 rectangle (Diagram 4; again note direction of marked line). Stitch, trim, and press as before to make a Flying Geese unit. The unit should be 4-1/2x2-1/2" including seam allowances.

7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 to make 16 Flying Geese units total.

8. Lay out one small uneven Nine-Patch unit, four small corner Four-Patch units, and four Flying Geese units in three rows (Diagram 5; note position of blue-and-tan floral and red-and-tan print squares in corner Four-Patch units). Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams toward Flying Geese units. Join rows to make block center; press seams toward middle row. The block center should be 8-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four block centers total.

9. Repeat Step 3 using two tan tone-on-tone 2-1/2" squares, one blue-and-tan floral 2-1/2" square, and one red-and-tan print 2-1/2" square to make a large corner Four-Patch unit. The unit should be 4-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 16 large corner Four-Patch units total.

10. Referring to Diagram 6, sew together a red print triangle and a blue paisley 3-3/8" square; the 45° point of the triangle should extend beyond the edge of the square. Add a second red print triangle to adjacent edge of blue paisley square to make a center triangle unit. Press all seams toward square. Repeat to make 16 center triangle units total.

11. Referring to Diagram 7, sew together a navy tone-on-tone triangle and a tan tone-on-tone triangle to make a left-hand triangle unit. Press seam toward navy tone-on-tone triangle. Repeat to make 16 left-hand triangle units total. Reversing placement of triangles, repeat to make 16 right-hand triangle units.

12. Referring to Diagram 8, join center, left-hand, and right-hand triangle units to make a side unit. Press all seams toward center triangle unit. The side unit should be 8-1/2x4-1/2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make 16 side units total.

13. Lay out one block center, four large corner Four-Patch units, and four side units in three rows (Diagram 9; note position of blue-and-tan floral and red-and-tan print squares in corner Four-Patch units). Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams toward side units. Join rows to make block A. Press seams away from middle row. The block should be 16-1/2" square including seam allowances.
