Introducing the 2013 TQS Block of the Month designed by Sue Nickels and Pat Holly! It's called "TWO OF US" and was created by the two of them. The quilt measures 79" x 79" and was completed just in time for Houston.

TOPIC: Month two

Susan, I so agree with you. I just finished month one and left the paper attached while I sewed the center sashing. I had tried it with the paper unattached found that I spent alot of time matching points and they were not perfect. I found that I could match the points perfectly by just carefully matching the ends. I pinned both ends, the center and then one in between. My points were always perfect. Didn't even look at points before sewing, they just came out perfectly. I did make certain my sashing strips were cut perfectly. I know it was a little more time to remove the paper, but found that not needing to match at all made it worth the time. Carol

I paper pieced both months and at Rita's suggestion, didn't tear the paper away from month 2 triangles and stitched right on the stitching line, which is making attaching the triangles to the center strips really easy. I think I'll leave the paper on until the 2nd side is sewn also. I haven't finished the center strips on month one yet. I sure wish I had left month one paper on the triangles.

Sure! If you don't paper piece the strippy unit, and you are having trouble making the unit come out to the right size you might want to review my test for stitching an accurate 1/4" seam allowance so that the unit comes out exactly right.

I paper pieced both the triangle units and the strippy unit.

I used graph paper to make foundations for the strippy units and they came out just right!

You might want to read through the comments on the other forum topics about these units.

I've made it through month one. Do I paper piece month two?
