Cory's Quilt

Aztec Sun, Deconstructed Block of the Month


  • Sometimes the journey is more fun than the destination!
  • Create a standard quilt top

o   Use twelve 10 ½ unfinished blocks

o   Cut 31 white sashing pieces 2 ½ x 10 ½

o   Cut 20 cornerstones 2 ½ x 2 ½ from kit leftovers

o   Add an extra 2 ½ white border for final trimming

o   Quilt should be about 40 ½ x 52 ½

  • Print a mock-up of the quilt and practice inserting strips
  • I used the Marilyn Doheny 25” – 9 degree Circle Wedge Ruler
  • I also used a 48” metal construction ruler to mark strip placement
  • Cut your quilt at an angle through the middle
  • Pin the insert strip to one side, stitch, press to strip
  • Position the two halves of the quilt and distribute the block pattern distortion
  • Make placement marks from the strip to the other half of quilt
  • Lay right sides together, pin, stitch, press to strip
  • Repeat inserting strips, trim quilt edges straight, although the quilt will probably NOT be square
  • Applique any extra shapes as desired
  • Quilt, bind, enjoy
