What a great way to tie the beds together... Is it hard doing the blocks on point? (is that it is called?)
It means what...boy do I need help typing!
As much as I'm into the newer designs lately, I love the traditional ones, too!
True , the diagonal set is not hard, I do this style often. The only suggestion I have is to use a design wall and go slowly. I start in the upper left corner and just work the diangonal rows, one at a time.
I love blocks set on point...nice!
Janquilter how do you know what size to make the setting triangles? The only quilt I did on point ended up getting it's setting triangles trimmed off and losing their points. I love blocks on point but I need to solve this problem!
Oh and I forgot to tell you that this is going to make a really nice bunk bed quilt. Too nice almost! Hope there's a no food rule on the beds!
Terryt1955 I have a couple of books that have a chart for setting triangles. I go by that. For instance, the finished size of this block is 7 inches, so, the corner triangles are cut 5 7/8 inch and cut once on the diagonal. The side triangles are cut 11 1/4 inch and cut on the diagonal twice. The place to be the most careful, is the sewing of the side triangles...they can stretch on that bias. I usually don't lose the points, but I do often have a little extra on seam at the point which I then have to trim.
Janquilter I really like these very classic and quite lovely, I bet they look great in your room!
Very pretty. These are going to look great together.
Thank you all. Today, they are on the way to the long-arm quilter, then binding and done!
And of course you'll post lots of "after" pictures I hope.These will transform any room!
These are really wonderful!
Congrats on a great finish...these look wonderful!
