Assemble Blocks


1. For one block, gather nine light pink floral 1-3/4" squares, three light turquoise tone-on-tone 1-3/4" squares, four tan tone-on-tone 1-3/4x3" rectangles, three tan tone-on-tone 1-3/4" squares, and stem unit with 3-1/2"-long stem.

2. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of six light pink floral 1-3/4" squares and two light turquoise tone-on-tone 1-3/4" squares.

3. Align a marked light pink floral square with one end of a tan tone-on-tone 1-3/4x3" rectangle (Diagram 2; note direction of marked line). Sew on marked line; trim seam allowance to 1/4". Press open attached triangle, pressing seam toward light pink floral triangle.

4. Align a second marked light pink floral square with opposite end of Step 3 rectangle (Diagram 2; again note direction of marked line). Stitch, trim, and press as before to make Flying Geese Unit A. The unit should be 3x1-3/4" including seam allowances.

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to make a second Flying Geese Unit A.

6. Referring to Diagram 3, align a marked light turquoise tone-on-tone square with left-hand end of a tan tone-on-tone 1-3/4x3" rectangle. Stitch, trim, and press as in Step 3. In the same manner, add a marked light pink floral square to right-hand end of rectangle to make Flying Geese Unit B. The unit should be 3x1-3/4" including seam allowances.

7. Repeat Step 6, reversing placement of squares, to make Flying Geese Unit C (Diagram 4).

8. Referring to Diagram 5, sew together remaining light pink floral 1-3/4" squares and light turquoise tone-on-tone 1-3/4" square in pairs. Press seams in opposite directions. Join pairs to make a Four-Patch unit. Press seam in one direction. The unit should be 3" square including seam allowances.

9. Referring to Diagram 6, lay out Flying Geese units A, B, and C; Four-Patch unit; three tan tone-on-tone squares; and 3-1/2" stem unit in three rows.

10. Join pieces in each row, sewing stem appliqué into seam. Press seams away from Flying Geese units. Join rows to make a light pink floral block; press seams toward middle row. The block should be 5-1/2" square including seam allowances.

11. Using dark pink floral squares instead of light pink floral square and stem unit with 9-1/2"-long stem, repeat steps 1-10 to make a dark pink floral block.

12. Using yellow floral squares instead of light pink floral squares and stem unit with 5-1/2"-long stem, repeat steps 1-10 to make a yellow floral block.
