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.

Right Handed

Left Handed

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.

Right Handed

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.


Make 4 of these Bonus Blocks

See you on November 15th for the release of Month 6 and tutorials. Remember, you join our Quilting Affection Designs Block of the Month Facebook Group to share your completed blocks.

Garden Enchantment BOM Block 4


It's that time of the month in the Garden Enchantment BOM.  Block 4 is now available to download and make.  Only 2 more months left in this Block of the Month Program, time just goes by fast.



Block 4 is very similar to Block 1 in a lot of ways, except for the coloring.  For this block, you will need your Tucker Trimmer® 1, V-Block® and Square Squared® tools. We will be making 4 blocks that have the following units: Half Square Triangles, SideKick & High/Low and Diamond in a Square unit.

Half Square Triangles

Let's start with a quick overview of the Half Square Triangles.



Start by marking the back of your white squares with stitching lines using your Quilter's Magic Wand to get the 1/4" on each side of the center diagonal.

Layer with right sides together with the white and green squares and stitch on the marked lines.

Trim down the middle of the stitched lines.  



Yielding two triangles. Press toward the Green triangles.


Right Handed

Rotate your unit 180° and reposition the Tucker Trimmer® once again on the unit this time making sure to line up the 2" trim line on the cleanup edges and the common diagonal on the seam lines and trim again.



Make 48 Half Square Triangles.

Diamond in a Square

We have been making the Diamond in a Square the last couple months now.  Please remember the following when you are making your 4 units.





Remember that you need to use your center square section of your tool to sub-cut your strips and get the accurate size for your center square. 



Remember when stitching your triangles to your squares to stitch with the square on top of the triangles, so you get the best visibility.






Position your Square Squared tool with the 3" "X's" on the seam intersections and dashed lines on the center seams, and make sure you have the 3 1/2" trim lines are inside the edges of the unit and make you first trim.


Rotate the unit around 180° and repositioning again lining up the "X's" and the seams, along with the 3 1/2" trim down line and trim again.


Make 4 Diamond in a Square unit.

SideKick and High/Low Units.

Finally, we are going to make 4 SideKick and High/Low Units.  Remember, we will be removing the left Side of the based Section Square and replacing it with a Side Triangle that is cut with your Studio 180 Design V-Block® Tool. 


Right Handed


Left Handed
To get started, we will place the based section squares on the mat FACE UP for cutting. Then you are going to put the Dotted line of you V Block® on the edge of the base section square and the bottom of the finished unit size guideline along the raw edge of the square.  Cut along the slanted edge of the tool. 


Right Handed


Left Handed 
Next, place your side triangle strip on the cutting mat FACE UP for cutting. This will ensure we are getting the correct side triangle for the replacement.  

Position the Bold Solid line of you V Block® Trimmer on the edge of the trimmed end of the teal strip and make sure to line up the bottom of the finished size guideline along the raw edge of the strip.  Cut along the slanted edge of the tool.



Right Handed


Left Handed
Rotate the V Block tool 180° and position the extended diagonal line against the previously trimmed slanted cut.




Layout the Side Triangles and base section face up as they will be positioned in the final unit. Position a side triangle and base section with right sides facing together.  Align the edges and Stitch with a 1/4" seam allowance.

Repeat to make 4 Side Triangle Units.  Do Not Trim at this point!  Next, We need to add the Low unit.


Mark a diagonal line down the wrong side of your Dark Green Square, which will be your stitching line.




Position the Dark Green Square in the bottom right-hand corner of your SideKick with right sides together and the line going across the corner. 


Stitch on the line, Trim the seams 1/4" from the stitching lines, and press away from the based unit.



Right Handed


Left Handed
Position the V-Block® trimmer tool on the unit.  Making sure to line up the side triangle seam with the guideline on the tool and to Position the intersection of the two seamlines where the guidelines on the tool intersect.  Note the seam on the folded corner will not line up with the guideline of the tool. Align the Finished size measurement with the seam lines.  Trim the first two sides.    


Right Handed


Left Handed
Rotate your SideKick & High/Low unit 180° and line up the V Block® tool again. Aligning the cut size stated in your instructions with the previously trimmed edges and the "X" lines with the sewn seam line intersections.  Trim the last two remaining sides. 



You will make 16 SideKick & High/Low units.

Corner Units




Stitch together the Half Square Triangles and squares to make the corner units, pressing according to the directions in your pattern.



Layout your units and stitch together, pressing according to the directions in your pattern.
