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.
- 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
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.
