Tips and Hints

Below are links to a popular pattern that HQG often uses for Comfort Quilts, the Thimbleberries “Treasure Quilt”. The links give the directions and fabric requirements based on the number and sizes of fabric squares used. This pattern starts with squares and, by cutting and re-sewing in the appropriate places, ends up with the squares on point. This is a cute quilt to make for kids using squares of various novelty prints.

The above instructions all make rectangular quilts. If you would prefer a square quilt, Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Company has a pattern and accompanying tutorial that uses two charm packs of 5″ squares to make a square quilt where the blocks are on point:
