  1. Make your Flying Geese Units: Like all the blocks before, we will start by making our flying geese! Replace the bottom left & right corners of your Farmers Almanac A Rectangles with POParazzi Navy B Squares. Make 4 total Flying Geese.
  2. Make your Center Unit: Next, make your center unit! Arrange (4) POParazzi Washed Denim I squares, (4) Farmers Almanac H rectangles, and (1) POParazzi Blue B square. Sew together in rows.
  3. Complete your Block: Layout your final block as shown, adding in the remaining Farmers Almanac B squares to your corners. Sew together in rows and trim to 12 1/2″ x 12 1/2″!
