 The Quilt Block Cookbook BOM met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above the women show us the blocks they made for this month.
This month we will be making Recipe 32 in the Quilt Block Cookbook by Amy Gibson.

I want to caution anyone using this book.  There are numerous errors in the first printing.  I'm not good at piecing and take classes like this to improve my skills, however, that is hard to do when the directions are wrong.  If anyone tries to make Recipe 36 and can get the points on the flying geese I'd like to know how you did that.  I took that block apart three times, measured and remeasured, and could not get the points on the flying geese.  Cathy couldn't either, so it's not just me.  Amy did send out an email telling everyone of some corrections in her book, however, there was no mention of anything in this block that needed changing. I'm particularly feeling terrible because I got 25 people to buy this book and join our group.  I know a lot of you are frustrated, but please don't give up.  Cathy and I will continue to test each block, make the changes necessary and get the information to you.  If you are sewing along with us and are making Recipe 32 pictured above, write me a note and I'll tell you the adjustments we had to make to this block.

On another note, Cathy (left) did show us this quilt that she made.  A year or so ago she made these blocks from Amy Gibson's on line BOM.  She used the QAYG method to put it together.
The back looks as pretty as the front.  Great job Cathy!
