Block on Point Printable

Learn how to make a quilt block on point.  There is a formula you can follow to make those quilt blocks “grow” in a setting that will make a larger quilt.  It’s a great trick when you need a larger quilt, but are limited with the amount of blocks. 

I’ve been working on some quilts and there is one that I decided that the blocks should be on point.  After searching for a bit, I found the formula that works well and the blocks turn out great. 

Why would you want to put quilt blocks on point? 

The quickest answer for me is to make a larger quilt! Having those blocks pivot on point allows you a triangle shape sashing that enlarges the original quilt block. 

These triangle sashings can be a great place for some fun and crazy quilt fabric, or maybe keep it a background color to calm the quilt down.  It can also be a great place to showcase some beautiful machine or hand quilting. 

No matter what size of quilt block you are starting, the formula works great.  Plus, you will find a printable version in the Quilt Resource Library. (instructions at the end of the post)

Excellent explanation

A comprehensive and easily followed explanation for how to figure setting triangles (both sides and corners) for a quilt with the design blocks set on point. Methodical. Step by step. Boiled down to simplicity, so anyone can do the math, simply by following along. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to design their own quilt with blocks set on point, but is afraid to do it because they fear they won't get the setting triangles "right".
