We had a marvelous turnout for our annual picnic on August 10th with delicious food and a notions swap, and much show-and-tell. We also had several wonderful people volunteer to serve on next year's EMQG board. Come to the September 14th to help elect them!
This month's Bee Blocks involve half-square triangle on paper foundations.

2016 Eugene MQG Skill Building BOM
Topic: Partial Seams & Y-Seams
Presenters: Nela Barrow
Objectives: Learn how to create blocks with partial and y-seams.
Realize that partial and y-seams are doable.
Framed Tilt-a-Whirl block (Unfinished 16.5” block)
Blue fabric: 2- 14.5” x 2” strips
4- 4.5” x 8.5” rectangles
Pink fabric: 4- 2.5” squares
1- 4.5” square
2- 14.5” x 2” strips
White fabric: 4- 2.5” squares
Follow the following tutorial for the middle of the block. http://www.diaryofaquilter.com/2013/05/virtual-quilting-bee-block-6.html
I have changed the sizes, so refer to the list above.
Once you have completed the tilt-a-whirl block, add your longer strips. You will be adding these strips using the same technique as you did for the tilt-a-whirl block. These are sewn on with partial seams. Look at the first tutorial in the list above to help with the outer strips.
