Blocks 1-4 by Jeanne Arnieri
The Block of the Month at Material Culture lately is Pheobe's Favorite: Dogtooth Applique.
Here are links to posts with free patterns for this traditional applique
technique in which you slash and turn points rather than using a template.
Becky Brown's Block #2 showing 5 finished, pointy edges and 3
before the fabric is slashed to make the points.
Denniele Bohannon is stitching her points using
templates---the more common applique style. Each month you
get patterns for both techniques.
We have a Facebook group where you can share your progress. It's an open group. You don't have to join.
And you can buy the set of patterns here in my Etsy shop---32 pages for $12. Do note there's an error in there ---the blocks finish to 18-1/2" not 18".

Becky Brown plans to applique a dogtooth triangle border
around the nine blocks and turn that on point.
You know she isn't going to leave those corners empty.
Two good sources for how-to's on slashed and turned Dogtooth borders:
Elly Sienkiewicz's Beloved Baltimore Album Quilts
Jeana Kimball's The Quilter's Ultimate Visual Guide.
Or sash them and do a Dogtooth Star in the cornerstones.
