How to get the Periwinkle Point

How to get the Periwinkle Point

Periwinkle Quilt by Jenny Doan

We have been having a few calls about how to get the point in the Periwinkle quilt, and I must say this was my first time doing it and it took me twice to get it right. I’ve put together a step by step slideshow of how it is done, to make things easier. If you want to watch the video of how to put the whole quilt together, check out the link below.

The tools you will need;

Tools

You will need a ruler, rotary cutter, Wacky Web Template, washable pen (I used a Frixion pen) and your 5″ square and 2 – 6.5″ x 5″ rectangle.

Step One:

Trace

Lay the template diagonal on your 5″ square and trace around it. Cut it out using your rotary cutter.

Your finished product should look like the photo above.

Step Two:

(The tricky part)

Placing

Take your solid 6.5″ x 5″ rectangle and lay across your print, left corner to a 1/4″ inch from the right corner, and ¬†right side down. Again, it’s not corner to corner, you need that 1/4″ space for a seam allowance. Sew the two pieces together.

Once you have both rectangles sewed on, your piece should look like the photo below.

Here’s a close up of how your point should look like.

Once you have these pieces you can follow pattern as written.

    I just got my blocks put together without a problem. All you have to do is bring the bottom background fabric in a 1/4″. If you have already sewn blocks, just go over them at the bottom.

    Is there a size the block is suppose to be? Got all my blocks made and trying to figure out how to get all points to match up when I sew the rows together.
