grids of the flock of geese quilting blockThis is an easy quilt block.  It is made from large and small half square triangles. You can see the 4 sections of the block at the left.  The top left patch and the bottom right patch are large half square triangles.

The top right and bottom left are made from 4 smaller half square triangles. 

If you want the 4 patch of the block to finish at 4 inches, your large half square triangles would be cut 4 7/8 inches, and your small half square triangles would be cut at 2 1/2 inches.

Review the section on half square triangles to understand the measurements.

Be sure you get your value correct, and you will have no problems with this block.
