if you do not have the special ruler required to make the Flying Geese as the directions are given here, I have alternative cutting directions for the 12" block. Make your Flying Geese by drawing a diagonal line on the squares and then sewing them to each end of the rectangle. Here are the cutting directions:


1. Instead of cutting (1) 7 1/2" square of Background #2, cut (4) 3 1/2"x6 1/2" rectangles
2. Instead of cutting (1) 4 1/2" square of Background #3, cut (4) 2"x 3 1/2" rectangles
3. Instead of cutting (1) 9" square of blue, cut (8) 3 1/2" squares
4. Instead of cutting (1) 6" square of red, cut (8) 2" squares
