 The Wednesday group of the Quilt Block Cookbook BOM met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.   Above some of the ladies show us their blocks that they made this past month.

 More showing of blocks.

 And more showing of blocks.

 Cathy went over all the instructions.  When the Monday group met, I took copious notes and you can read about them here.  As apparent above, Cathy kept the women in stitches (pun intended) while going over the complicated directions.

As I said, the instructions for this block are a little tricky.  Above, some of the women discuss how to make this block.
This might help.  When making the section with the Y seam, place your squares as shown above.
You will know when you have done it correctly, if you fold back the one square before you make that diagonal stitching and it looks like this.  Hope these pictures help.  Cathy gave everyone her number in case you have questions.  PLEASE NOTE:  You may join our group at any time.  However, if you are a late comer, kits for previous blocks may not be available.  ALSO, all participants, please feel free to attend either the Monday night or Wednesday morning group.  It's okay to interchange.

Marjorie from Utah is following along with us.  Above is a picture of the block she made this month. Great job.  I like her color choices.

NOTICE:  The fall Newsletter is now available.  Click on the lady's hat on the sidebar and you can read about all the fun and exciting upcoming events.   If you cannot see the sidebar you can see the newsletter by going here.
