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;


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:


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)


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 hope this helps everyone
