The Quilt Block Cookbook BOM group met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above the ladies show the block they made for this month.
Above is the sample I made of the block we will be making this month.  It is recipe #2, Cherry On Top, page 24 in the Quilt Block Cookbook.  Kits were distributed and you will see that this is a relatively easy block.  The one thing I did caution people on was cutting the striped fabric.  Make sure your stripes are all going the same way as you cut each piece.

NEWS!  I'm sure you all have heard of Christmas In July.  Well, the Attic Window Quilt Shop is going to be different.  The shop is having Halloween In July!  How different is that!  You won't say Boo to this....Stop in anytime during the month of July and receive a free Halloween pattern for a table topper!  While there, be sure to check out the specials on Halloween fabrics, patterns, etc.
