Aztec Dance BOM - Month 5

 



I really can't believe we are already on Block 5 in the Aztec Dance block of the month. Next month (November 15th). I will be releasing the final block and finishing instructions so you can finish your blocks. 

You can now purchase Block 5.  Remember, you have two options for buying the pattern. First, My website is set up for both Printed and Downloadable PDF versions. For my International customers, I have an Etsy website.

Month 5

This month's block consists of two different Flying Geese color combinations and Triangle Pizazz units for the corners. There is no Diamond in a Square unit in this block, but we will be making them in Bonus Block 2 (tutorial found below block 5), which is included in this month's block.

Let's get started by cutting out those pieces from the cutting chart in your pattern.

Flying Geese

Note: If you have purchased your pattern from a quilt shop before this 10/14/2020. I have found an error on step 11 on page 2 of this pattern. Please see the Aztec Dance BOM Page download the updated page. 


In this month's block, we are making two different color combinations of flying geese units. 



Start by using your Quilter's Magic Wand, mark two lines, each 1/4" away from the center diagonal on the two small squares. Remember to use a very fine tip mark pencil or pen when marking your lines; this will give you a couple more extra fabric threads for those trim downs.

Position the two small squares diagonally on the opposite corners of the larger square. Remember to nudge the small square in toward the center in a couple threads.



Stitch on the drawn lines, then cut apart between the stitching line on the center diagonal. Press the seams toward the small triangles.

Place the remaining marked small squares on the units, again remembering to nudge in a couple threads from the large triangle sections' raw edge. Then cut apart between the line of the stitching on the center diagonal.

Align the diagonal guidelines of the Wing Clipper® with the seams of the Flying Geese unit. You'll automatically be centering the tool over your pieced unit. Refer to your Block Instructions for Trim downsizes for your block size. Trim the sides and across the top. 


Right Handed

Left Handed

Rotate your flying geese unit 180° and reposition your Wing Clipper® 1 to align the previously trimmed raw edges with the proper size for your unit and the "X" at the top with the intersection of the seams. 


Repeat to make 16 of both color variations of Flying Geese.

Triangle Pizazz Units


Start by drawing a diagonal stitching line on a Gold Square. Position the small square on one end of the small rectangles with the right side facing each other. The diagonal line should run from the top left corner to the right (see above picture).  Stitch on the diagonal line, trim the excess 1/4" from the stitching line. Press toward the

Small triangle. 

Unit A

Unit B


As shown in your pattern instructions, Position rectangle units either make a Unit A or Unit B and stitch the pair together along the rectangles' long sides.

Fold the unit in half and snip the seam allowance the center between the two triangles all the way through the seam allowance.  Press the seams in opposite directions away from the triangle. 

Center the unit on a large Rectangle and using a ruler with a 45° angle mark (The Tucker Trimmer I works great for this).  Place the 45° line on the unit's edge and draw a 45° sewing line on its wrong sides.  Making sure the line runs from top to bottom and goes through the corner of the triangle where the stitching lines meet.  Draw a second line on the opposite side of the unit through the other triangle.

Stitch on the drawn lines.


Cut a 1/4" from the stitch lines on both sides. Press toward the blue larger triangle.



Position the sizing diagonal of the Tucker Trimmer over the unit so that it lines up with the unit size diagonal seam line of the Triangle Pizazz and assuring the common diagonal lines up with the triangle at the center. Trim the first two sides.


 
Rotate the unit 180° and line up the Tucker Trimmer repeatedly, aligning up the diagonals and cut sizes with the previously trimmed edges and trim.

Assembly


Now comes the easy part of stitching all your units into beautiful blocks, referring to your pattern instructions to complete your 4 blocks.




Bonus Block 2



For this Bonus Block, we will be making a large Diamond in a Square unit.  Now, if you are making the wall hanging, you can use either the 6" or the Large Square Squared tools.  But if you are making the Queen, you will need to use the Large Square Squared tool due to that you are making a 9" finished size.

Since we should be familiar with the Square Squared tools by now, I will not be going into detail on how to make this unit.  


Please remember to use the Center Square Section of your Square Squared tool (Part A- from the Large Squared Squared tool) to trim down the center block before sewing your unit.

Right Handed

For the Trim, start by position the Trim Down Section (Part B of the Large Square Squared) of the Square Squared tool over the unit. Be sure to refer to your pattern instructions for trim sizes. Focusing the "X" of the finished unit sizes over the sewn seams. Trim up the side and across the top.

Rotate your Diamond in a Square Unit and reposition the Square Squared tool and the two remaining sides. Again, trim up the side and across the top.

Aztec Dance BOM - Month 2


Welcome back to Month 2 of the Aztec Dance Block of Month.  I hope you enjoyed making your Month 1 block.  If you are new and would like to read all about Month 1, you can read about right here.

You can purchase Block 2 Here.  Remember, you have two options for buying the pattern. First, My website is set up for both Printed and Downloadable PDF versions. For my International customers, I have an Etsy website.

Also, Today 7/16, at 3:30 pm, I will be doing a Live Tutorial on the block and discussing how to make each of its elements. Plus answering any questions, my Quilting Affection Design Block of the Month Facebook Group.   


Let's get started with Month 2's Tutorial.





Month 2 is now available for purchase. The tools you will need for this month's block are the Tucker Trimmer and Square Squared tools. This block makes into 6" (Wall) and 9" (Queen). 

For this month's block, you will be making two different types of Diamond in Square units. Additionally, you will be introduced to the Triangle Pizazz units that use your Tucker Trimmer tools.

Diamond in a Square


Last month we made Diamond in Square units (read the blog post), this month we will continue to make them, plus we will be making Dual Color Diamond in Square units.

Dual-color Diamond in a Square is made the same exact way that standard Diamond in a Square is made, except we will be using two different colors.


After your center square is cut, you will cut your tan and Gold squares in half diagonally to make triangles. Place a Tan and Gold triangle on opposite sides of each other. Stitch and press away from the center square. Remember to stitch the center square with the triangle on the bottom. 



Next, add another Tan and Gold triangle on the opposite side of each other. Then Stitch, Press, and trim just like you would with a regular Diamond in a Square unit. 



Triangle Pizazz A units


Now we need to introduce the Triangle Pizazz technique. This technique uses the Tucker Trimmer tool and is based on the Triangle Pizazz Technique Sheet.  If you like this technique, you can purchase the Technique Sheet on my website. 


Start by drawing a diagonal stitching line on a Gold Square. Position the Gold Square on one end of the Tan rectangles with the right side facing each other. The diagonal line should run the top left corner to the right (see above picture).  Stitch on the diagonal line, trim the excess 1/4" from the stitching line. Press away from the rectangle. 




Position two of the A rectangle units, as shown above, and stitch the pair together along the sides of the rectangles.



Snip the seam allowance at the halfway between the two triangles all the seam allowance.  Press the seams in opposite directions away from the triangle.  

Using a ruler with a 45° angle mark.  Place the 45° line on the edge of the unit and Draw a 45° sewing line on the wrong sides of the unit.  Making sure the line runs from top to bottom and goes through the corner of the triangle where the stitching lines meet.  Draw a second line on the opposite side of the unit through the other triangle.



Center the unit on a Blue Rectangle, and stitch on the lines.


Cut a 1/4" from the stitch lines on both sides. Press toward the blue larger triangle.

Position the sizing diagonal of the Tucker Trimmer over the unit, so that is lines up with the unit size diagonal seam line of the Triangle Pizazz and assuring the common diagonal lines up with the triangle at the center. Trim the first two sides.

 Rotate the unit 180° and line up the Tucker Trimmer over the unit again, aligning up the diagonals and cut sizes with the previously trimmed edges and trim.


Triangle Pizazz Unit B

The Triangle Pizazz Unit B, it made the same way as Unit A, but the starting small triangles are rotated in the opposite direction.




Draw a diagonal line on the small Gold squares. Place the Gold squares to the diagonal goes from the top right to the bottom left on a tan rectangle: Stitch, trim 1/4" from the seam, and press.



Stitch a pair of units along the sides of the triangle edge.  Snip the seams in the middle and press the seams in opposite directions.



Using a ruler mark the 45° lines on the wrong sides of the unit, that run top to bottom and runs through the corner of the triangle unit. Repeating on the opposite corner.



Center the unit over a large blue triangle and stitch on the lines. Trim 1/4" away from each of the stitch lines.  Press toward the blue triangle.

Position the tucker trimmer over the unit, so the lines up line up with the unit size and the diagonal seam line of the Triangle Pizazz unit. Trim the first two sides.

Rotate the unit 180° and line up the Tucker Trimmer over the unit again. Aligning the diagonals and the cut size lines with the previously trimmed edges and trim.


Assembly



Now comes the easy part of stitching all your units into beautiful blocks, referring to your pattern instructions to complete your 4 blocks.
