on point quilt quilting

Tropical flower quilt block – On point quilt series – video tutorial

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.
