Quilt Shot Block #79 ~ Union

12 ½ square
Make 2½ inch half square triangles as follows:
 Pin one color to each background right sides together.
Mark as shown.
 Sew 1/4 inch from each side of the diagonal line.
Cut on solid lines.
 Press open and trim.
The demo above was not a 6x3 inch rectangle.  
It was larger so there was a lot more to trim to make a 2½ square.
Make 4 Flying Geese as follows:
 Mark as shown.
 Stitch 1/4 inch on each side of the marked lines.
 Press open.

 Cut along marked lines.
