Squares to An On Point Quilt Again


Here's another try at taking a rectangle of squares sewn together to make an on point quilt.  I got a few comments and e-mails with concern over losing the points on the outside round of my Halloween table topper (see earlier post).  I cropped the top of the photo below too close so it looks like I will lose my points in the border seam allowance, but they are still there.




Here is the layout of the squares.  The only problem with this one is where to make the cut.  In the end I had to sew another green triangle on one corner of the quilt to complete the square.  This layout is 6 X 10 squares.  



Here is a layout that I tried.  The empty spaces are white squares.  That doesn't show up too well in the photo.  I was trying to get a white square in the center and.......




Oops.  So it's back to the drawing board.

 
I'm having company this weekend, but stay tuned for the next installment of this project.  I'm working on yet another idea.

I had a BFO (blinding flash of the obvious) and realized that each time I try one of these experiments, I'm creating yet another UFO.  They will be good for machine quilting practice.

Hope you are finding some time to stitch this weekend!

Thanks for visiting!
