Continuing with the on point quilt series, here’s a another floral block: tropical flower.
The constructions is similar to a log cabin block with half square triangles at the end of the strips.
So let’s make a tropical flower block.
And if you’re new to on-point quilts, here you have some background.
An on point quilt is assembled in diagonal rows.
Each diagonal row starts and ends with either a corner setting triangle or a side setting triangle.
Julie Baird of Generations quilt patterns has a good in depth explanation on setting triangles for an on-point quilt.

My book Turnabout Patchwork
“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
Buy individual chapters of my book
Now that my publisher is going out of business I have bought the rights to publish my book. Now you can download individual chapters. Each digital download is a bundle with 4 quilt patterns in it.
As well as the instructions and fabric needs to make the blocks you’ll find a section on quiltmaking basics at the end of the pattern that discusses:
- Squaring up blocks
- Assembly and quilting
