This block is in their honor--Square Dance. Make the sides using the same method as making flying geese. You will have extra fabric on the sides of the geese. After the geese are made, check to make sure they measure 4 1/2" to match the center square. Trim a little if necessary.
four 1 1/2" sq.
four 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" rect.
one 4 1/2" sq.
eight 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" rect.
I hope that you take time to dance even if it is by yourself while doing the dishes.
