 The Quilt Block Cookbook BOM Monday evening group met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above, from left to right, Dawn, Vicky, Mary, Robin show us blocks they made this past month.

 Cathy shows us the block we will be making this month.

According to Cathy's instructions, this sounds like a tricky block to make.  She told us what template we need to copy from the book we are using: The Quilt Block Cookbook by Amy Gibson.  Cathy cautioned us to make sure that our copy of the template is the exact size as in the book, and then add 1/4 inch around before cutting the paper.

Cathy also gave us a demonstration on paper piecing and cautioned us that there are two sets of rectangles in this pattern.  Make sure you are using the correct ones for this triangle paper pieced square that is in the corners of the block.

Cathy also showed us how to make the square with the Y seam.  Pretty complicated here too.

For those of you who did not attend Monday's meeting, be sure and come to the Wednesday group meeting on Oct. 26 at 11 a.m.  You won't want to miss any of this important information!  If you have not signed up for this BOM, you may still do so.  Just come to the Wednesday meeting and see what all the fun is about.
