This month's block is straight from the MQG Website. Block Study is Side Stripe by Renee Tallman, a member of the South Bay Area MQG. It's a half-square triangle block — with a twist! It features a fun stripe in the middle, making for a fun effect. Find the block pattern and bonus quilt pattern for this scrappy version in the link below.

Here are some Additional Tips:
Tip #1When adding the final white triangle, fold both pieces in half,
to find the centers then mark with a pin before stitching.
Tip #2 When preparing to square, take extra time and care,
cut to straighten the sides.
then use your diagonal line to ensure the square is the correct size and angle.
Tip #3 Pin the two blocks to match all seams.
Tip #4 Make 2 blocks, one for the OMQG Raffle and one for yourself!
