    Setting Blocks On Point- I'm making my first on point quilt and having a time. so, I sat down and drew it out on graph paper.Going 3 down and 3 across you need 13 blocks. 4x4 you need 25 Blocks. 5x5 41 blocks. If your blocks are 8 inches square they are about 10 inches wide on point, so 4x4 would be 40inches by 40 inches, 5x5 rows equal 50x50 inches. I also included how many HSTs to fill in the edges and 4 quarter triangles for each corner. Hope this helps some of you. ;)

    "I make things for people because it gives me time to think about them and pray for them as I do. The joy for me is in the making and the giving... The last thing I would want is for a handmade gift to cause guilt or discomfort. Give it away, keep it in a box, or display it in your home. It's for you to decide." lassothemoon.type... #31days

    I know I said I'd never make another t-shirt quilt , But... I found all the old cross stitch t-shirts I made and decided to try it again. Y'all don't know the hours spent on the cross stitch alone. I wound up quilting it with the walking foot, straight stitch one inch apart. Used masking tape as guides. Worked great 45x50 Jenn-Alabama
