Dreamscape Block Blog Hop: Day 7

Hello, fabric lovers! 

It's the last day of our Dreamscape Block Blog Hop. We hope you've enjoyed all seven block tutorials we've shared here--bookmark them to give them a try after Thanksgiving! 

For this blog hop, we selected a six-color palette from our luscious Dreamscape prints to play with: Navy, Cloud, Lime, Grape, Daffodil and Lead. You'll love the variety of blocks our designers have created! And make sure you enter each day's giveaway for a chance to win fat quarters of these six Dreamscape prints! Enjoy!



Here's Wendy! 
Hello Friends,  Happy Thanksgiving to you!  I am happy to be a part of the DreamScape Blog Hop! 

Each blog hop participant was given the following fabrics to come up with a 12" block.

My "Diamond Layer" block is going to look like this.  It consists of making two sub-units twice.  Easy peasy  - you shall see!


Constructing Unit A
Let's tackle the top right and bottom left sub-units - as they are the same. 

a.  For both unit A's, we will cut
(1) 7" x 7" square from Daffodil and Cloud
(2) 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" square from Lime
(2) 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square from Grape
(2) 3" x 3" square from Lead

b.  Then, I turned all my squares over, and drew diagonal lines on the wrong side of each square, except for the Cloud square.

c.  HST UNITS.  Place the Daffodil square on the Cloud square, right sides together.  Sew 1/4" away from, and on right and left sides of drawn line.  Cut along the drawn line to yield 2 HST units.  Aligning the diagonal seam against the 45 degree line of quilting ruler, square HST units to measure 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" raw edge to raw edge.  These two HST units will be the starting point for Unit A.

d.  The Lime corner triangle is shown to be on the Daffodil side of the HST unit.  So, place the Lime square, right sides together, at the Daffodil corner of (1) HST unit.  Sew on the drawn diagonal line.  Trim 1/4" away from sewn line.  Open and press to reveal Lime corner triangle.


IMPORTANT NOTE:  That sets the precedent on how to add subsequent squares in Unit A, as well as Unit B.  I will not go through in detail for subsequent steps as they are the same.
e.  So, on the cloud side of the HST, first place the Grape square, right sides together, at the Cloud corner of the HST unit.  Sew on the drawn diagonal line.  Trim 1/4" away from the sewn line.  Open and press to reveal Grape corner triangle.  Repeat with Lead square to complete (1) Unit A.  Repeat to make (2) Unit A.


Constructing Unit B

a.  For both unit B's, we will cut
(1) 7" x 7" square from Daffodil and Lead
(2) 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" squares from Navy
(2) 5" x 5" squares from Lime
(2) 4" x 4" squares from Cloud
b.  Follow the same method used to make Unit A to make (2) Unit B - take note that Navy is on the Lead side of the HST unit, and Lime and Cloud on the Daffodil side of the HST unit.


Block Assembly
a.  Sew (2) Unit A and (2) Unit B in a four-patch manner to complete the block.


What to do with the trimmed off "dog ear" triangles? I save all of them for a future projects. :) 
Thanks so much for dropping by.  I hope you like my block "Diamond Layer" block as much as I have liked making it. :)
Thanks Wendy!

  2. What a brilliant way to put these units together. I don't think I've ever seen anyone use differing size squares to set the size of the strips of fabric. I've just signed up to follow by email. Um, favorite T-day food -- mashed potatoes! We seldom have them except with big turkey dinners. LOVE this line of fabric.

  80. I am a follower on both Facebook and Bloglovin', as well as via notification email.

    My favorite Thanksgiving dish? That's really tough to chose as they are all my favorites. I think if it were taken away I'd really miss the Broccoli Salad I make which is a copycat recipe from Sweet Tomatoes Restaurant. I keep it special by only making it on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Of course, the stuffing is always near the top of the list as well. OH, and the homemade cranberry orange relish I make too. See? TOO hard to choose just one favorite.
