 Next, using scant 1/4" seams now and for the rest of the block-making, sew four of each of the units shown at top left. Then sew the shorter of the two top units to the right edge of two large half square units, having the Color 3 (purple) side of the half square in the  the lower right position. Press seam towards the large half square. Add the longer unit to the bottom of each unit you just made, pressing seams towards the newly added strips. Make a total of two units like this, then make two more reversing the locations of the larger Half square colors Each should measure 6-1/2" at this point...
 To make the flying geese units, place a Color 1 2-1/2" square right sides together atop the left end Color 4 rectangle, with outer edges aligned. (I show mine staggered here so you can see what units I am talking about.) On the back of the top square lightly mark the diagonal. Sew on this diagonal marking. Cut off the excess seam allowance. Press the remainder towards the corner. Repeat this with another Color 1 square on the other end of the rectangle. Make four flying geese units in the same manner. These should measure 2-1/2" x 4-1/2"...
 Now sew each flying geese unit to the upper edge of each Color 1  4-1/2" square. Next, in the same manner as you "made new corners" for your flying geese unit rectangles....sew Color 2  2-1/2" squares to the lower corners of your Color 1 squares, again trimming off the excess seam allowance and pressing the remainder towards the new green corner triangles. Make a total of four of these units. They should measure 4-1/2" x 6-1/2"...
 Lastly, lay out all the units we've made plus the one extra Color  3  4-1/2" square you cut as shown at left. Sew three horizontal rows. Alternate pressing directions by row. Join the rows together to finish up your Crow's Feet Variation block! Good Job!! ...on to Page 3!
