and is my rendition of Block A5 from the Jane Stickle Quilt. If you are unfamiliar with this quilt, I urge you to go to http://www.dearjane.com to see the quilt, and read about this wonderful woman!!

** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **

First mark and cut the Color 1  2-1/2" x 12-1/2" strip into five 2-1/2" squares...

Next mark and cut the Color 1  3" x 10" strip into eight 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" rectangles...

Now mark and cut the Color 2  3" x 12" strip into sixteen 1-1/2" squares...

Place a small Color 2 square atop the left end of a  Color 1 rectangle, right sides together and with all edges aligned. On the back of the small square, lightly mark the diagonal, and sew ON this marked line. Cut off the excess seam allowance, leaving 1/4". Press the seam towards the inner triangle. Repeat this with another small square on the other end of the rectangle. Make eight of these units...

 

Now sew the flying geese units together in pairs, using as always a SCANT 1/4" seam. Make four units. Press seams towards the upper goose unit...

Then sew the units together to make rows, and join the rows to make the block. On the top and bottom rows, press the seams towards the outer units. On the middle row, press the seams towards the center square. When joining rows press seams in alternating directions...and  You Are DONE! :o)
