The block I made for her quilt is a traditional block called Wild Goose Chase.
Here's how I put it together.
This 12'' block has a light background fabric, two medium prints and two dark prints.
From the light fabric cut:
1 6 1/2'' square
2 3 1/2'' squares
16 2 3/8'' square - cross cut on the diagonal as shown
From the two medium and two dark prints cut 2 4 1/4'' squares each. Cross cut these twice on the diagonal as shown.
Make four flying geese units from each of the medium and dark prints paired with the light background.
Sew these units together into strips of four as shown below.
Make two hourglass blocks pairing a medium value print and a dark print in each. There will be two small triangles of each of these prints left over. Add them to your scrap pile!
Arrange the previously pieced units as shown so that the flying geese strips are pointing to the corner blocks of the same fabric. Sew these together as you would to make a nine patch block.
