Atlanta Mystery Quilt - Part 4

Guest Author - Kim Noblin

PART 4 - DANCING AROUND THE SQUARE


Step 1: In Part 3, you drew a line from the top left corner to the bottom right corner on the wrong side of all light 2-7/8" squares. You used 32 of those squares in Part 3. You should have 16 left over to use in this part.

Step 2: Layer a light 2-7/8" square on a dark 2-7/8" square, right sides together. Sew a 1/4" seam on EACH side of the line. Cut apart on the line and press seam toward the dark fabric. Trim points. Repeat fifteen more times for a total of thirty-two light/dark half-square triangles.

Step 3: Using a pencil and ruler, draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of all medium 2-1/2" squares as shown below:

Step 4: Place a medium 2-1/2" square on the right end of a dark 2-1/2" x 6-1/2" rectangle (right sides together) as shown below. Stitch a seam on the diagonal line that you drew Step 3. Trim the fabric above the sewn line to 1/4". Repeat on the left end and press seams toward the medium fabric. Repeat for a total of thirty-two dark/medium units.

Step 5: Arrange two light/dark half-square triangles and one dark/medium units (from Step 4) as shown below. Using a scant 1/4" seam, sew together to form a row. Press seams toward the half-square triangles. Repeat for a total of sixteen rows.

Step 6: Sew a Step 4 row to the left and right sides of a light 6-1/2" square, as shown below. Press seams toward the center square. Repeat for a total of 8.

Step 7: Sew a Step 5 row to the top and bottom of the block, as shown below. Press seams toward the center square. Repeat for a total of 8 "Square Dance" blocks.

You now have eight Square Dance blocks. Blocks should measure 10-1/2" unfinished. They will measure 10" when sewn into the quilt.

Don't forget to check back on November 28, 2004 for the final installment!
