What Is an On Point Quilt or Quilt Block?

A quilt block arranged on point.

©Janet Wickell
Definition: On point quilt blocks are arranged with their corners pointing up and down, like the block in the illustration to the right.

On point quilt blocks are sewn in diagonal rows, leaving jagged openings around the perimeter of the quilt. The triangular openings are filled with setting triangles.
