Instruction Diagram
Step 1: Sew a light B triangle to a medium D triangle on the short side. Repeat sewing a light B triangle to the opposite short side of the D triangle to form a rectangle. This forms a B/D/B Flying Geese Unit. See diagram. Repeat to make four of these units. After sewing each seam, press seams toward smaller triangles.
Step 2: Sew a light A triangle to a medium C triangle along the short side as shown in the diagram. Repeat to make two A/C units. Note the medium triangle in on the right. See diagram. Press seams toward the medium.
Step 3: Sew a medium C triangle to a light A triangle along the short side as shown in the diagram. Repeat to make two C/A units. Note the medium triangle in on the left. See Diagram. Press seams toward the medium. Please Note: Step 2 and Step Units are mirror images to each other.
Step 4: Sew a A/C unit to one side of a dark F square, then sew the other A/C unit to the opposite side of the dark F square. See diagram. Press semas toward the A/C Units.
Step 5: Sew the C/A units to the remaining two opposite sides of the dark F square to complete the center section. See diagram. Press seam toward the center dark square.
Step 6: Sew a B/D/B Flying Geese Unit to each side of the center section. The light B triangles should line up with the light A triangles. This forms the middle row of the block. See diagram. Press seams toward center.
Step 7: Sew a medium E square to each end of a B/D/B Flying Geese Unit, this makes the top row of the block. Repeat to make the bottom row of the block. See diagram. Press seams toward E Squares.
Step 8: Sew the top row to the middle row, then sew the bottom row to the middle row to complete your block. Press seams to one side.
