Now speed piece the half squares by stacking a Color 1 and Color 2  5-3/8"" x 10-3/4" strip right sides together and all edges aligned. On the back of the top strip lightly draw in the 5-3/8" square line, and draw in the diagonals as shown at left. Now sew a scant 1/4" above and below the marked diagonals, pivoting at the square line. Cut apart on the square lines and on the marked diagonals between the rows of stitching. This will give you four half squares. Press seams to darker side. Trim these back to measure 5" if needed. ...

Now piece the block following the diagram at left. Make three rows, pressing seams in alternating directions by row, then sew the rows together to complete the block!

The Quilt is four blocks by five, with a border of extra flying geese and quarter square units ...very antique-y looking! Hope you like it!

Happy Quilting All!
