navy/blue 5-1/4" squares. Cut these on both diagonals to get
four quarter square triangles from each. Also, cut THREE white/
background 5-1/4" squares into quarter square triangles. Cut
NINE 2-7/8" (2 shown) white /background squares and cut them
each in half to make half square triangles. Also cut NINE random
blue 2-7/8" squares and make half squares. If you prefer make
six copies of the PP template and skip all this cutting) ...
To make the geese, sew white half square triangles to
the blue quarter square triangles in a 1/4" seam. Press
