Assemble Blocks

1. Referring to Diagram 5, lay out four Flying Geese units, four solid cream 1-1/4" squares, and one pink check 2" square in three rows.

2. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams toward squares in each row. Join rows to make a Sawtooth Star block. The block should be 3-1/2" square including seam allowances.

3. To reduce bulk, clip through both layers of seam allowances up to seam lines 1/4" on each side of seam intersections (clips will be 1/2" apart). Press Flying Geese seam allowances toward pink check and solid cream squares. Press clipped intersections open to create a tiny Four-Patch on the block’s wrong side (Diagram 6).

4. Repeat steps 1–3 to make 16 Sawtooth Star blocks total.
