How to make a rose bud block – On point quilt series – video tutorial

Continuing with the on point quilt series, here’s a rose bud block.

The constructions is similar to another floral block we made recently with some leaves added.

So let’s make a rose bud on point block.

Cutting directions

  • 1 square, 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ in pink
  • 1 square, 4 7/8″ x 4 7/8″ in pink
  • 1 square, 4 7/8″ in green
  • 3 squares, 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ in the background fabric
  • 2 squares, 4 7/8″ x 4 7/8″ in the background fabric
  • 1 rectangle, 2″ x 3″ in the background fabric
  • 1 rectangle, 2″ x 4 1/2″ in the background fabric
  • 1 square, 3″ x 3″ in dark red

Finished size

12″ x 12″

A simpler variation of this 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.
