9 ½ inch X 13 inch
14 3 X 5 background
28 3 X 3 points- patterned
Taking the 3X 5 background print fabric lay one 3 X 3 on the corner. Match up the side edges. Sew down the center- from one corner to the other. (If you have a hard time finding this center line draw a line to follow).
Before trimming the extra off fold this corner back to make sure it works! Then trim it. Repeat for the other side.
You will end up with 14 pieces finished looking like a flying geese. Trim whole part to 3 X 5 in size.
No pics for this one. Pretty simple.
28 3 X 5 points- patterned
14 4 ½ X 4 ½ background
Taking the 4 ½ X 4 ½ background piece fold in half and iron it. This will give you a center marking line.
Then place the 5 inch length from point to center mark. This will be at a diagonal. Sew 1/4" seam along the edge.
Fold back. Repeat for the other side.
Trim block to 4 ½ X 4 ½.
28 3 X 4 ½ corner background

ROW #1: Sew one 3 X 4 ½ corner background to the 4 ½ x 4 ½ pieced block, then another 3 X 4 ½ corner piece.
ROW #2: Sew one 3 X 5 pieced block to the center 4 ½ X 5 block, then another 3 X 5 pieced block.

See the 4 1/2 X 4 1/2 blocks are at the top and bottom. the flying geese 3X5 blocks are on the sides. I sewed mine in the row with them standing tall. The picture at the top has the whole quilt top. I so need a new one that isn't blue….and maybe even quilted…..hmmmmm…
