Though I think it would be stunning in red and white, I decided I wanted mine to be more fun.
The flowered print is a feedsack fabric and the dot fabric is supposed to be a 1930's reproduction fabric.
If you look at the block carefully, you can see that it can be made from eight flying geese units, four each of the two units shown at the left in the photo below. The photo on the right shows one of each unit sewn together to make one-fourth of the block. You need to make four units exactly the same and rotate them to create the Swastika pattern.
To make a six inch finished block like I did, you make flying geese that finish at 1 1/2" X 3". I used the Quilt in a Day flying geese ruler to make mine. To make geese with this ruler , you start out with a 6" square and a 4 1/2" and end up with four geese all alike. I love this ruler!
This is a super simple, fun block! It can be found in Electric Quilt's BlockBase as #1339b.
