    Default Charm Squares on Point

    This was an easy quilt from Jenny's tutorial. I made this as a gift and I found that no matter how careful you are to separate the colors while you're putting it together, some colors may end up next to each other after the panel is cut and the new sections sewn together. I ripped and swapped out a few, but then I decided to just "let it go."

    I kept the quilting simple: straight lines away from the seams and a cross hatch in the borders. This quilt goes together really fast and measures about 57" square.

    Picked up a couple charm packs to make this. Thanks for the tips! I love your fabrics.

    Yes it happened to me. Was very careful watching not to get the same fabric next to each other and once it was cut and reassembled they ended up next to each other. I was disappointed. Any hints on how to plan ahead so it doesn't happen?

    The only thing that I can think of is to make a graph drawing on paper with your colors penciled in. Then cut the paper into the sections per the tutorial and put those pieces where they belong. That should show where the colors will end up and give one a chance to make changes.

    Another option might be to use 2 coordinating charm packs so there wouldn't be so many repeats. Of course, these extra steps take the "Quick" out of the pattern and make extra work that I'm not sure solves the problem.

    To me, this method of setting squares on point seems way more difficult than sewing diagonal rows with setting triangles.

    That is such a pretty quilt. And fairly large too. I love your quilting.

    I think it looks great!

    I found that if you make two 6 x 6 squares instead of the 6 x 12 rectangle, you can decide which way to cut it, arrange the triangles the way you like them and avoid some of the matching fabrics. It also helps to arrange the squares so that you don't have "duplicate prints" along the edges. Hope that makes sense?

    I do love this pattern!
