The next block in our State Quilt Block Series is Connecticut. Flying Geese units combine with half-square triangles and a diamond in the center to make up this quilt block.

Cutting Instructions:

Cut two 3-7/8" squares, four 3-1/2" x 6-1/2" rectangles
and one 6-1/2" square.

Cut two 3-7/8" squares and twelve 3-1/2" squares.

Sewing Instructions:

Step 1: With a pencil (or your favorite marking method), draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of all red 3-7/8" and 3-1/2" squares as shown below:

Step 2: With right sides together, layer a red 3-7/8" square on a green 3-7/8" square. Sew a 1/4" seam on EACH side of the diagonal line that you drew in Step 1. Cut apart on the drawn line and press the seam allowance toward the darker fabric. Trim points. Repeat once more for a total of four red/green half square triangles.

Step 3: With right sides together, layer a red 3-1/2" square on the upper right corner of a green 3-1/2" x 6-1/2" rectangle as shown below. Stitch along the line that you drew in Step 1. Trim away fabric 1/4" above the seam and press the seam allowance towards the red fabric.

Step 4: With right sides together, layer a red 3-1/2" square on the upper left corner of the same green 3-1/2" x 6-1/2" rectangle as shown below. Stitch along the line that you drew in Step 1. Trim away fabric 1/4" above the seam and press the seam allowance towards the red fabric. Repeat steps 3 and 4 three more times for a total of four flying geese units.

Step 5: With right sides together, layer a red 3-1/2" square on the green 6-1/2" square at the upper left corner. Sew along the line that you drew in Step 1. Trim away the excess red and green fabric 1/4" above the seam as shown below and press the seam allowance toward the red fabric . Layer a red 3-1/2" square on the lower right corner. Sew along the line that you drew in Step 1. Trim away the excess red and green fabric 1/4" above the seam as shown below and press the seam allowance toward the red fabric . Layer a red 3-1/2" square on the upper right corner. Sew along the line that you drew in Step 1. Trim away the excess red and green fabric 1/4" above the seam as shown below and press the seam allowance toward the red fabric . Finally, layer the last red 3-1/2" square on the lower left corner. Sew along the line that you drew in Step 1. Trim away the excess red and green fabric 1/4" above the seam as shown below and press the seam allowance toward the red fabric . One red/green center square made.

Step 6: Arrange the half-square triangles, flying geese units and center square as shown in Diagram 1. With right sides together and using a scant 1/4" seam, sew together to form rows as shown in Diagram 2. Sew rows as shown in Diagram 3 to finish the block.
