Cheater On-Point Block Tutorial

Today Kimberly is bringing back the Rolling Stone Classic & Vintage Quilt Block! She’s using it in this video tutorial as she demonstrates how to make an on-point quilt with our FREE Cheater On-Point PDF Guide. This guide is designed for quilters of any level, and there’s a Rolling Stone Medley Quilt Kit and Backing Set to make one just like ours.

We’ve chosen the Ridgewood collection by Minick & Simpson for Moda Fabrics for our Rolling Stone Medley Quilt. This fabric selection combines the beauty of traditional styles with a palette of eye-catching red and pink hues. We love the result!

  1. What iron are you using in the video? Thank you. I have always loved this block! Thank you for the video. Hugs,

  2. An on-point setting is not that difficult.

    This method adds too many extra seams for my liking.

    Love the quilt. One of my favourite patterns. Thanks for sharing it.
