Thanks for the tips Carrie -- I can't wait to play with this one.

Lynne @ boutschoisis

Thank you for doing all that work for us - it is much appreciated!


Thanks for the picture tutorial. I'm a visual learner so this makes things clear for me.


Thanks for the tips! I'm sure I'll need all the help I can get! I'm off to order my pattern......


Thanks for these useful tips! Your tips confirmed my faith that I can sew it! I'm just figuring fabrics for the Hook. I think, when I read your story I figured my fabrics, but when I saw your other version - I'm not sure anymore. Maybe I have to sew many versions of Hook;o)


I like tools. I'm visually challenged and need all the help I can get. Thanks, it all makes sense now.


This is full of great information. Thank you for taking the time to explain it all!!


OH my gosh...plain and simple, just like that :) LOVE IT and LOVE how your mind works...poor Rosie, remember, she does the best she can :)

Thank you for the tips! This helps a lot. Off to find fabric and start on Hook.

Thanks for the tutorial....... I did your "Bungalow" quilt last month in Sinta's parade and that went together 1 2 3.....when I read the instructions for Hook I was a tad nervous :( This will help me get thru the first few then I'm sure it will be easier!

Hi Carrie, I'm here again! I sewed my first hook block this morning and noticed that the TRI -tool won't work with the Hook! At least not mine tool, which is Zimmerman&Hoffman. It's angle is less than 60 degrees! Hopefully I have better luck with next block;o) I'll cut it with Clearview Triangle/ 60 degree...


My Tri tool doesn't work either. I need to go get a 60 degree ruler...

Well, you made that look easy enough! Lots of movement in this one - so no scraps, use one line of fabric? Going to check to see if I have a 60 degree ruler - Im sure I have everything else- LOL!! I agree, why make yourself crazy sewing exact, when you can trim to exact with little waste -


Super thanks. Can't wait to get started. I really like the alternate triangle setting, I need to find some charm packs!


I love, love, love the piecing then trimming! It has made my quilts so much more precise! It may not be the "traditional" method, but I love it! Thank you! I made Hook last month and it is so much fun to make :-) I think you did a great job getting as much fabric out of the fabric strips as possible. Taking the end strips off and sewing them together is brilliant! At first when I was reading it I thought "what?" But once I did it once......just like you said in the pattern.....I was "hooked"! One of my favorite patterns ever!
