How do I make it?
Now take your rows, and assemble into 9-patches as shown, and set aside.
Next, cut a 4.5" strip of your background fabric (we're using white in this example). Cut into 4.5" squares and set aside.
Now for those "wings". Cut 6.5" wide strips each of the red and pink fabrics. Segment your strips into 4.5x6.5" rectangles. Cut a 2.5" strip of background fabric, and segment into 2.5" squares.
Take a 4.5x6.5" rectangle of red and stitch two 2.5" squares on to the corners, right sides together , as shown:
Flip the corners back to the stitch line and press carefully. You may trim off the inside fabric if you wish.
Repeat the above step for the pink "wing".
Now we're ready to assemble the block. Make a row of a 4.5x4.5" background square and the pink wing. Stitch. Make a row of the red wing and the 9-patch. Stitch, and then stitch the rows together.
