    Thanks Jan! I love doing “on point” quilts. I am working on Pam Buda’s 1800 quilt now.

    Thank you Jan! I am embroidering blocks now that will be placed on point. I always seem to mess that up. Your diagram and tutorial is perfect.

    Thanks very much for this tutorial. I wish I had had this tutorial when I did my first on-point quilt...what a nightmare that was. With your great tutorial, I feel any future on-point quilts will go much more smoothly. Thanks again.

    Your instructions and diagrams are always, shall we say, "on point." (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

    I think I might be setting my current quilt on point. It'd be a first for me, and I needed a really clear tutorial like this to give me confidence to try, Thanks so much.
