Here are some of the reference tutorials which I had watched before doing this table runner:
For the center block I fussy cut the birds from the fabric, this tutorial was helpful:
The finished block size is: 12.5inches
Here is what you need to make each block:
1. Flying geese rectangles - 4 (measures 3.5"x6.5")
2. 3.5" squares - 4
3. 6.5" square - 1 (This is fussycut for the center of each block)
I used a sashing of 3.5" rectangle by width of the block and then 3.5" by the height of all the blocks pieced together. This is too big. If I have to re-do this all over again, I would rather go with 2.5" sashing. There is too much white space. And then add a dark color outer border to frame the quilt.
Here are more pictures of the quilt/table runner:

Here is the closer look at the quilted center block:

Finally I added a wide binding to the wall hanging.
