    Looking for pattern

    Awhile back, I saw a pattern where you finished your top of all blocks and
    then you cut the top in sections and sew back together to make it look like
    it is done "on point".
    Does anyone know where I can find this?
    Thanks in advance.

    Here is a free pattern. http://www.stitchedbuy.com/Home/free...-quilt-pattern

    I have the book and it's the method you sew squares and then cut to make them on point.
    Got fabric?

    Here's another link if you're starting with a rectangle:

    I've used this before and even demonstrated it at a guild meeting. It's fun and easy!

    Doggone it BELLABOO, I just spent a week orginazing all of my free pattern downloads and here you've tempted me with a new one. That said, where did you get the book? Looks like I may have found a easy way to do quilts on point!

    ITA it's a neat trick and very intriguing. I first learned this technique twenty years ago (yes, that long!) in a QIAD class doing a Double Rose Trellis quilt.

    When it came time to cutting, I couldn't and wouldn't do it, as I was too fearsome that one slice and all my work was ruined!!!! So, I let the class teacher do the task, as I stood in fear of what might happen. Even today, I still assemble the rows in the on-point row fashion, rather than dealing with that risk of ruin!!

    Honestly, other than it being another technique ... I don't think it is really any better than going at it the other way.

    I tried this on a placemat (started with something small -- good thinking on my part). Something went wrong, which isn't unusual when I jump in with both feet. The pattern I used showed where to put a consistent solid (like black) so you would have black in the corners and on the edges. Somehow, they were all cut small and it didn't turn out right.

    We still use it, and it's a fascinating technique, but my two cents? Try it out on something small before trying it on a quilt!

    Hi, I'm new on this board and found it because my "Square-agonals" technique and free pattern were mentioned. It was great to see all the comments. I do agree about starting with a small project if you are afraid to cut into your quilt top. But once you try it you can see how easy it is. I have quilters making the larger quilt projects all the time without fear. It is also helpful for the larger projects if you utilize my guide tapes.

    Thanks again for all of you who commented and feel free to contact me if you have any questions about Square-agonals. I am so glad I found this Quilting Board! You look like a grand group of quilters!
