May 2021 Block Of The Month

Bernina Group BOM Block 5

For this month’s block, we are not focusing on any new skill builder techniques but we are revisiting methods from previous blocks as a refresher of what we have learned so far… this is an easy month so make lots of this block and make a table cloth or runner in your favorite fabrics… this will go fast!

Remember in Block 1 last January how we made flying geese four at a time using the square sewn method… this month we are going to make the triangles for our block using the same method…

you will need three fabrics, two prints and one back ground fabric which can be print or solid…

Cut one square from print A, 7-1/4 by 7-1/4 inches….

Cut one square from print B, 7-1/4 by 7-1/4 inches…

and finally from the back ground fabric, cut 8 squares 3-7/8 by 3-7/8 inches…

On all 8 of the 3-7/8 inch background squares, draw a line on the wrong side of the fabric, corner to corner diagonally… stitch a background square to each opposite corner of one of your 7-1/4 print squares and sew 1/4 inch on EACH SIDE of the line… cut apart and stitch one more back ground square to the last corner of the large square on each half… press toward the back ground fabric… these rectangles should measure 3-1/2 by 6-1/2 so square them up if need be… now assemble your block in any color way you like and enjoy!

your block should measure 12-1/2 by 12-1/2.. See you next month for Block 6…
