Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the back of all of the 4 inch squares. Line two of these squares on a 7 ½ inch square as illustrated.
Sew a scant ¼ inch on each side of the line. Cut on the line and press the triangles back.
Place a 4 inch square on the corner of each of the resulting halves as illustrated.
Sew ¼ inch on both sides of the line. Cut on the line and press the triangle back.
Square the resulting flying geese to measure 3 ½ x 6 ½ inches.
Repeat the process, using all of the 7 ½ and 4 inch squares. Create a total of 96) flying geese units.
To assemble the quilt sew a 2 ½ inch sashing strip between two blocks to create a row. Repeat four times to create 4 rows. Sew 2 ½ inch square cornerstones between 3) 2 ½ x 12 ½ inch strips. Create 3 of these rows and sew between the 4 flying geese rows. Sew the 2 ½ inch sashing strips to the top and bottom of the quilt and then to the sides. Sew the 5 ½ inch final border to all sides.
Quilt as desired. Bind and enjoy!
