Dutchman's Puzzle

Hi!  If you enjoy this blog, please become
a follower, I need to know if anyone is out
there using these tutorials!  And pop on over
to the American Homestead blog and see what
is going on in my life.  All the best!  ~ Ellen

I'll be flying in and out of Amsterdam
a few times in the next few weeks so
this block seemed appropriate. I hope to
see windmills and tulip fields from the air.

Fabric Requirements:
Fabric A: White
16 - 3 1/2" squares - Mark
a diagonal line on back.
Fabric B,C,D,E: Red, Green Blue, Yellow
2 - 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" rectangles
of each color

Make Flying Geese Units:
Place 3 1/2" square on left side of
rectangle with right sides together
and sew a thread width above drawn
line to accomodate the fold of the
fabric. Press seam to the corner and
trim back 2 layers of fabric to 1/4".
Repeat process to right side of
rectangle. Square to 3 1/2" x 6 1/2".
Do this to all rectangles, making 8
in total.

Pair rectangles as shown and sew together
taking care to have precise points.
Square to 6 1/2".

Layout units as shown and sew together
in 2 rows. Press seam in row 1 to the right
and seam in row 2 to the left.

Sew rows together and press final seam
open to reduce bulk. Square to 12 1/2".
