You can use any fabric that you want or if you have leftover ones then that’s best for this project because you can make this as scrappy as you like. Learn how now with the help of this video tutorial by Carol Thelen on YouTube.
Cut the fabric according to size, then line the wrong side of the background squares diagonally from corner to corner, and place 2 of them on the corner of a large square making sure their right sides are facing and placed opposite from each other diagonally as demonstrated in the video.
Stitch them together on both sides of the line with ¼ inch seam allowance, then cut them in half, and press the seams open. Rotate the piece, then place another square on the remaining corner, stitch on both sides with ¼ inch seam allowance, cut them in half, and press the seams open.
Cut off the nubs, then repeat with the remaining set, and stitch 2 flying geese units together making sure the points are facing the same direction. Pair the rectangles together making sure the colors are opposite from each other, then stitch them together, and press the seams open.
Lay the pieces out to form the block making sure to refer to the diagram, then sew them per row, and press the seams as you go. Stitch the rows to each other, then press the seams open, and you’re done!
