2. Align a marked green print 1-1/4" square with one end of a gold print 1-1/4x2" rectangle (Diagram 4; note direction of drawn line). Sew on drawn line; trim excess, leaving a 1/4" seam allowance. Press open attached triangle.

3. Align and sew a second marked green print 1-1/4" square to opposite end of gold print rectangle (Diagram 4). Trim and press as before to make a Flying Geese unit. The unit should be 1-1/4x2" including seam allowances.
