On the Bus and On Point, Part II

With an agreeable nephew in tow, I got off the bus, transferred to the subway and rode off to the 1:00 p.m.  Quilters' Guild of Brooklyn meeting. Except that the Guild meets at 11:00 a.m. Oops.
No wonder the bagel platters were empty.
Squares on Point
Now the previous Saturday I'd gone to the Empire Guild meeting in Manhattan to see my favorite sister act, Mary Mashuta and Roberta Horton. That's a 1:00 p.m.meeting from which we traipsed to the Doughnut Plant outpost on 23rd Street to sugar out. I blame the sugar.
While in my Brooklyn state of disbelief at missing 99% of the meeting, I was awestruck as Micki Segel unpacked her Square on Point quilt for me. Look at what I nearly missed. She cut squares from eighth yard pieces. What a knockout. I smiled all the way home on the subway thinking about her phenomenal use of fabric.

I recorded my original Square-on-Point technique in January 2005 with Alex Anderson
which is available to computers in the United States. It will open in a new window
I improved this 2005 technique and detail it with more than thirty photographs in my 2010 book: Rotary Cutting Revolution Using my new CuttingLines pattern, the mat is no longer marked. Use any size squares, the finished blocks will be 1¼  inches smaller than those squares. Just cut on my lines.
