Dance with Me BOM Block 1, Step 3 Assembly!

Step 3 Assembly
The last couple days we have covered process to make Block 1 of the “Dance with Me” BOM Block 1.
How to make the Flying Geese - HERE

Center blocks - HERE

Today we will be finishing the blocks with the Assembly process.
Note: I will be just talking about the assembly process in these blocks, if you need the exact number of blocks to make or cutting information please download the pattern, HERE.  Also, I’m assuming that you have already finished the cutting of your pieces following the Cutting Instructions. All seams are sewn with ¼” seam allowance.

Let’s get this started

Step 1. Assemble D rectangles on each side of the flying geese units, to make a D/CFC/D Units.

Row 1 and 3


To make Row 1 and 3, Assemble A squares on both ends of the D/CFC/D Units you just finished.  (Refer to pattern instructions to get the total number to make.)

Row 2

To make Row 2, Assemble 2 D/CFC/D Units on each side of the center block. 

Tip: Make sure to align the flying geese points and center point of the center block. Pin a much as possible so there is no movement of the units.

Assembly of Rows

Step 1.  Lay the rows out as shown in the above picture.  Row 1, Row 2, Row 3.

Step 2. Sew Row 1 to Row 2 (center), assuring that all the seams and points align up. 
Press open.

Step 3. Sew Row 3 to the bottom of the already assembled Row 1 and 2 units. Again assuring that all the seams and points align up. Press open.

Repeat until you have all the center blocks completed for the total of 9 blocks. (Refer to pattern instructions).

Hope you enjoyed making this block.
