Do you ♥ “on-point” settings? I do!
There are already two Inklingo “on-point” shape collections and today we added two more!
Now Inklingo has the perfect triangles for
Some quilters avoid on-point settings because they find it tricky to get the triangles the right size with straight grain on the correct edges.
Inklingo does it for you. No math! No measuring!
Inklingo quilters have requested these shapes especially because of the new Inklingo 3 inch Baskets (see below).
The goal is to have straight grain on the edges of the quilt.
- the corners are half square triangles (HST), which have straight grain on the two short sides
- the edges are quarter square triangles (QST), which have straight grain on the long side.
Inklingo does the math and measuring. You sew!
In addition to the triangles for the edges, each collection also includes a plain square and a square with an appliqué design—perfect for back-basting.
This flower is in a 5 inch square.
In this example, I combined Inklingo Drunkard’s Path 3 inch units with the On-Point Shape Collection for 3 inch Blocks.
Plain squares set off elaborate blocks with appliqué and curved piecing.
My love affair with on-point settings started 15 years ago when I made my variation of the Jane Stickle Quilt using Brenda Papadakis’ book Dear Jane™.
With these Shape Collections, you can use any 3, 4.5, 5 or 6 inch squares, like Dear Jane™ blocks, Winding Ways, Yin Yang, Log Cabin, LeMoyne Star, Sunflower, and many others! (Index of Inklingo Shapes)
I have more examples of “on-point” settings to show you, so stay tuned.

We are breaking records for cold temperatures this week. It was 0F (-18C) when I got up this morning. The daily high should be about 37F (3C) at this time of year, but the forecast is for daily highs well below freezing for at least the next week!
