    I found a beautiful way to set blocks on point. I wanted the name of the block setting or was willing to purchase just the instructions for the quilt. However the quilt store would not sell me just the instructions. To see the quilt please check Quilting by the Bay, then Patchwork Party 2010 finishing quilt. From the picture is looks like squares and rectangles in various sizes. Sure would help if I could start with some instructions and then adapt them to my quilt. Thanks for the help. This is my first post.

    Hello and welcome from Alabama :-D :-D :-D Here is the website http://www.quiltingbythebay.com/PatchworkParty2010.asp The way I understand it , is, you have to purchase each block kit from each of the twelve quilt shops and then choose how you want to finish it from one of the twelve also. So that's one block kit each store and then pick a stores finishing kit look. Here is the gallery http://www.patchworkparty2010.com/gallery.html click the thumbnail to view each quilt stores block and finished look. They all look like standard blocks ,you could go to each quilt store and find the name and google a free version of each block and then finish it your own way, with your own fabrics. Hope this helps. :-D

    Welcome to QB. Nice block setting. Depending on the size of your blocks
    you can work it out on graph paper. It's like a log cabin. You start with
    a square, add a rectangle on each side, then add (small square + rectangle
    + small square to top and bottom) and carry on.
    On second thought and to make things easier I would probably draw the
    block setting first then decide on block size otherwise you might end up with
    some odd size. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the response. Let me try again and explain. I like the way Quilting by the Bay chose to set the blocks. How did they set the blocks. What are the dimensions, etc for taking the completed blocks and turning them on point and complete the quilt or what is the name of setting these blocks. The store will not sell me the instructions for "their" version of completing the quilt once the basic blocks are completed.

    I understand what you mean.... The 'inbetween' blocks are what you want instructions for. If you look at it you will see it starts with a 9 patch block then you add 'sashing' around it. I have to get to work right now, but I'll try and do the figures for you tonight or tomorrow for a 12 inch finished block if nobody else has posted for you.

    Usually these blocks in the Patchwork quilts are 12 inch finished.

    Here is one set of instructions on setting on point:
    http://www.quilterscache.com/H/howto...triangles.html

    It gives the calculations and a chart for all sorts of block sizes.

    hope this helps! I know it is frustrating to see something and not be able to learn how without paying a lot or driving to every store.....

    But setting on point is a pretty common technique, so I am not sure they would even give you much instruction to do so in their pattern. Maybe sizing for those specific blocks. But if you are doing a different sized block, it won't help you too much without the calculator/chart above.

    eta: and if you can visualize the blocks not on point, you should be able to do all but the outside triangle blocks... I would get some graph paper and once you know the finished size of the inside blocks and pieces, those would be the same..you would just need to add a seam allowance width onto the black squares...hope that makes sense....r

    Like I said it's a log cabin variation. Look here:
    http://www.quilterscache.com/L/LogCa...tionBlock.html

    This is a 12" variation but you could go smaller depending on
    the size of your other blocks...or start with a bigger square and
    wider strips...your choice.

    Are you talking about all of the blocks in the rose garden quilt or just the nesting block (the single block shown) on the link above? Let me know and I will see if I can create one in my bernina software.
