Pink Quilt on Point
This quilt was made in response to my overflowing pink/red scraps. Although honestly it didn't make a very large dent! These blocks are just quarter log cabins, set on point. Setting blocks on point always tends to make a quilt look just a bit more special.
My one regret on this quilt is the setting triangles (the ones along the edges). I KNEW I should do them in whites/lights, but I wanted so badly to use up more of my dark pink scraps, so I went ahead. I still like it, but the look I was originally going for was to have those on point squares floating on a light background.
Oh well, it's just a different look, but a good lesson to follow my gut. Maybe I'll make another one with this idea, just in slightly different colors.
I used a black and white fabric on the back, because I thought it was heavy enough on the pink already!
In case you're curious about block sizes on this one, the log cabin blocks were around 9", and then the setting triangles are easy to figure out by googling 'quilt block setting sizes on point' or something similar :) Make sure to follow instructions for cutting the side and corner blocks, as these are always cut in triangles from a larger square to make sure you don't have bias edges around the outside!
