Description

This is one of the two bunk quilts I am making to go in the same room as my project "Guest Room Quilt". There is a set of bunk beds in that room so I wanted to make coordinating quilts. I made 75 pieced blocks and have cut the setting pieces for this one quilt. I have enough pieced blocks so I can move them around for balance and some will not get used. I had been making the blocks for a while, then took a trip. I was able to add in some fabrics from the trip so it freshened up what I already had.
I finished the construction of the first of the two tops. Now I can start on the second...maybe tomorrow...LOL
 
 
Aug. 16. I finished both bunk quilts last week and have just put off getting pictures. There is a lot of shadow in the photo but the quilts are still visible.
 
September 13 Finished the binding on one of the quilts and have the binding machine sewn on the other, so it is ready to hand sew.
 
September 18 Made the last stitch in the binding on the second quilt and took a few photos. I am pleased with how the quilts turned out.
 
The close-up photos show the difference in the setting fabrics.

What a great way to tie the beds together... Is it hard doing the blocks on point? (is that it is called?)

True

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.

Janquilter thanks!

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.

Thank you all. Today, they are on the way to the long-arm quilter, then binding and done!
