Add the 8 x 5 rectangle to one side of the nine patch as shown. Then add two 2 1/4 inch squares to each corner and sew diagonally from corner to corner. Now if you want, you may trim off the excess leaving a 1/4 inch seam allowance. (I left mine on since I had dark red fabrics and the double layer of white-on-white helped mask the dark reds underneath the corners.)
Next add the corners to the other 8 x 5 rectangle, and then sew it together with the 5 inch background square.
That goes on the top of the block and your block is finished. It should measure exactly 12 1/2 inches.
And here's my sample block.
