QUILT BLOCK COOKBOOK BOM

Members of the Monday Evening group of the Block Cookbook BOM met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  This was our first meeting and above is a picture of the Criss Cross Applesauce Block that we will be making this month.  All blocks will come from Amy Gibson's The Quilt Block Cookbook.
 This block is an easy one, made with a square, half square triangles and flying geese.  Above, we watch as Chris gives us a demonstration on how to use a special ruler.

 Questions were asked and answered.

We even watched a video on various ways to use the ruler.

For those of you who missed our meeting on Monday, feel free to come to the day time meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 11 a.m. at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.

YOU CAN DO LOTS WITH QAYG

Marilyn and I had a Quilt As You Go one-on-one Friday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Marilyn said she had a bunch of homespun fabrics she wanted to use, so she decided to make her quilt with those.  During our session she made two blocks, learned how to attach them to each other. and quilted them.  She did a wonderful job and I can't wait to see the finished quilt.
Above is a closeup of one of her blocks.  There are a multitude of ways to quilt these blocks and Marilyn chose to use the straight line method.  That is my favorite.
While Marilyn made her blocks, I decided to use up some of my black and white scraps and made the above mug rug.
I've decided to use this base and applique this bright flower on it.  Haven't decided what to use for binding.  You can learn my Freezer Paper Applique method and make a mug rug with me on Wednesday, September 28, from 2 - 3 p.m.  Call the shop to register and get a supply list.

MORE FINISHES BY MISTI

When recently talking to Misti (co-worker) I learned that her quilt was finished.  Naturally I had to see it and take a picture to show you.  Isn't it lovely!  Misti said it is a Christmas gift and I'm not telling who she is giving it to.

This closeup shows you the adorable kitten fabrics she used in the quilt.  As I recall, she said the quilt came as a kit.

But the kit did not include this beautiful Moda fabric that Misti used on the back of her quilt.  She actually has two quilts in one!

Misti also showed me this table topper, table runner, and mug rug that she recently completed.

This is a closeup of one of the blocks.  Misti said that the Primitive Gardens pattern was for a quilt.  However, during a recent move, the pattern was misplaced and Misti decided to make the blocks that she had finished into these other items instead.  Pretty clever, don't you think?

Thanks Misti for sharing your lovely work with us.
