The Quilt Block Cookbook BOM met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. The block the women made this past month is Trading Post.
More show their works.
Marjorie, who lives in Utah, has been following along with us.  Above are her most recent blocks.
It's so fun to see that readers in other areas are following along with us.
This month the group will be making this block.  It is Sun Kissed from the Quilt Block Cookbook.
Instead of paper piecing those eight outside pointy blocks, you might want to try this handy Creative Grids tool.  It is the Strippy Stars Tool and allows you to strip piece these blocks.  And for future projects, it allows you to make these star points in 8 different sizes!  You can get your tool at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.

This group has been meeting for the past year.  Some members would like to continue as their are a lot more blocks in the book.  We still have room for two more if anyone is interested in participating in this fun group.  Just call the shop and register.  We meet on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 11 a.m.

Generosity has no bounds. Above are the women in the Quilts For Kids group at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Left to right, Henrietta, Phyllis, Nancy, Carol, Karen. These women donate their time, fabric, money once a month to make quilts for kids who have cancer.
