Step 1:

Start by taking one 10″ background square and one 10″ printed square. Lay them right sides together, then draw a diagonal on both sides from corner to corner. Sew a quarter of an inch on both sides of the lines. Once done, cut directly on the drawn lines, then in the middle in both directions. This will give you 8 half square triangles. Press them open toward the darker fabric. Trim them if needed. You only need four for each block.

Step 2:

Make the flying geese. Take one piece of 2 1/2″ by 4 1/2″ white rectangles and two pieces of 2 1/2″ printed squares. Fold the squares in half diagonally and press to make a crease. Lay one of the squares on one end of the rectangle, right sides together, then sew right on the line. Trim 1/4 inch away from the seam and press it open. Repeat with the other side. You need 8 pieces of flying geese. Sew them in pairs, just lay one on top and sew on the long side. The points must be pointing in the same direction.

Step 3:

Arrange the corner blocks and flying geese block together just like in the photo below. Place the 4 1/2″ background square in the center. Sew them in rows first. Once done, sew the rows together.

You need 5 across and 5 down. For the sashing, it will be the same size as your block. For the cornerstones, you need 36 pieces of the 2 1/2″ squares.
