Easy On-Point

I have done a Charms On-Point, but this way seems easier and is a smaller quilt. As always, just thinking of all of you who have access to a sewing machine with nothing else to do. lol

That is a neat concept. The only issue I would have with it is the points would be cut off when adding a border.

Very interesting! I'll add it to my growing list of projects!

Rebecca, You're right as the edge points are slightly lost. The one I did was much larger, had more cuts and solid edge triangles. For a toddler to drag around, this size is perfect and as for the points, this wouldn't be the technique for someone who would be bothered by it. It just seemed like an interesting concept for a quick on-point quilt.....at least to try once. @:)

Kate, Should you get to any of your projects, you know we like pictures. @:)

I'm in Michigan now and need to start my day of helping to keep things on track at my niece's while she and my sister are at the church decorating for a wedding on Saturday.

Interesting concept, but all the outside edges will be bias edges. It also looks like it might be really easy to screw up and cut through the wrong row.

I frequently use on point settings, but I guess I never thought cutting the setting triangles to be a chore. I'd much rather cut those than deal with bias edges all around a quilt top.

Sharon, thank you for thinking of us, we do appreciate it. Adding it to my list of to-do's.

That took me awhile to figure out but that is cool! I wonder if you have to stick to that row ratio?

Karlene, If you were wanting a larger size, here's another pattern and it uses 10" squares for the edge triangles. It also makes it easier to see where to cut.
