My block is called Enchanted, you will find it on page 52 of the magazine.  I love watching blocks interact in a quilt top, and thought I would share a couple of options with you!

Enchanted - AmysCreativeSide.com

I love the simple, secondary elements within a full quilt top.

Enchanted Runner - AmysCreativeSide.com

And a runner  set on-point, would make a fun addition to your table!

I think the block is much more fun in a group :)  How would you set it?  Straight or on-point?

    Congratulations on having a block in this volume, Amy! One of my favorite settings is when the block is on point and then set in a zigzag with solid zigzag blocks in between.

    I love your table runner on point setting! I usually like a straight setting, but it depends on the block itself!! Looks like Volume 7 is the very best issue yet! Can’t wait to get a copy!!

  22. 22
    Koricard says:

    I usually like blocks set on point but I think I like your block set straight because then the pinwheel design that forms at the corners is actually on point and gives it a neat effect. Great block!

    michele says:

    love your block. Looking forward to your neutrals book.

  24. 24
    Carol Sc says:

    I like setting blocks on point — it totally changes the effect and makes it harder to identify. I really like your block — it has many possibilities — which is probably true of most blocks.

  25. 25

    Great block, Amy! I like it on point –great movement! Thanks for the giveaway!

  29. 29
    lyn crain says:

    I love the block both ways but if I had to choose it would be the point version because it has great visual movement.
    Congratulations, your block is a worthy contribution to a great magazine.

  30. 30
    Faye says:

    I am often drawn to setting blocks on point, but when the block design creates such a dynamic secondary pattern like the one you presented here, I think you get all of the excitement of setting blocks on point with just a straight setting!

  31. 31
    Nancysue says:

    I like both but am leaning towards setting it straight. Even straight there is a point design. I love how the “flower” print reads as a sparkle on a diamond :)

  32. 32
    Nancy D. says:

    I like it on point, but normally just do straight settings. Cute block!

  36. 36
    Susan says:

    Amy – Congrats on being a marvelous magazine. I adore the block. It never ceases to amaze me how a beautiful block comes together with other blocks from the same pattern to make an even more beautiful quilt with a secondary pattern appears. I love pin wheels and was pleasantly surprised to see the pin wheel appear. I would probably set it on point. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Sandra Timmons says:

    I like the idea of a quilt top that turns into a secondary element within a full quilt top. I think that is so neat and becomes more unique.

    Linda R says:

    I’ve always done mine straight unless the pattern is done on point. I like your pattern.

    SewLindaAnn says:

    I’m always attracted to on point designs.

    Becky (central oregon) says:

    I love setting blocks too each other as opposed to with a sashing…

  46. 46

    I love on point setting.

  47. 47
    Deb says:

    I would definitely set these blocks on point. A very fresh and interesting block!

  48. 48
    Patricia Hersl says:

    Looks like I tend to diagonal settings. And sashing seems quite popular too. Am I in a rut?

  49. 49
    Betty says:

    Mostly I like it straight set.

  50. 50
    Lori Smanski says:

    congrats on being in the book. I really don know what setting means. But I do really like doing log cabins so far.

  51. 51
    Brenda hulsey says:

    I like the set side by side. Very nice block!

  52. 52
    Cindy W. says:

    I lean toward sashing and cornerstones but your block does best with multiplies so different designs show up – love the tablerunner!

  53. 53
    Robin says:

    I like your block on point. When making my own quilts the block usually determines if I use a straight or on point setting. Thank you for your block!

  54. 54
    Donna says:

    I like blocks set straight and love how your block has little pinwheels when set together. Thanks

    Jane says:

    Love the block, I’m really into table runners right now so love the new idea.

  58. 58
    Kim says:

    Usually I would say on point. With this one, as the corner blocks make a pinwheel, I have to say it depends on the fabric and what is the dominant color. Vague statement there. I would have to play around with several blocks before I determined which way I would go.

  59. 59
    Dorothy B. says:

    Scrappy set on point

  60. 60
    Betty Domal says:

    I like them both, but the large quilt is more dramatic.

  62. 62
    Colleen says:

    What a great way to use charm squares – including those that I’ve cut from my scraps.

  63. 63
    Andrea Harles says:

  64. 64
    Diana says:

    I like it on point! Thanks for the chance to win!

  65. 65
    Becky Ball says:

    This block is already on point appearing. I love those. I like on point settings that are actually straight sets. Straight works with this one.

  66. 66
    Lucy says:

    I’m most comfortable with straight settings but have tried others including Circle of Nine which is fun.

  67. 67
    Sharon says:

    I like them both but I guess it would be on point. Thanks for the giveaway

    I love seeing how different a quilt looks when changed from a straight setting to an on-point setting. I think most often I like the on-point look better.

  74. 74

    I think I like the straight one best, but the on-point setting also looks good. A beautiful block, by the way!

  75. 75

    I’m in the middle of moving and packing up my sewing room. All I can do is live vicariously through others sewing right now. I love how the pinwheels appear. It’s definitely going on my list of future blocks. My granddaughter is traveling from Hawaii this summer to sew with me. I can’t wait.

  94. 94
    Kristen says:

    Unfortunately, the first two pictures are not showing up for me so the only one I can see is the runner where you say it’s set on point. It makes me intrigued to get the magazine and see the block itself! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Amy, “Congratulations!” First, I like the settings you chose for your quilt and your table runner. I would
    have to say the setting I would prefer depends on
    the block as well as the quilt size and intended use.

    Barb Johnson says:

    I like diagonal lines in a quilt. since your block has diagonal movement; I’d use a straight set rather than a diagonal one.

    patti leal says:

    such a simple block that can make so many different designs. most of the time i use a straight set, but other times i much prefer on-point. takes less blocks and the edge and corner tris are usually a cinch. thanks for a chance to win. patti

    Mary C in WA says:

    What a great block for a fabrics you want to NOT cut up into tiny pieces. I always check to see if the quilt wants to go on-point when I’m designing on my wall. The borders and setting Triangles are a bit tricky though. Hope to Win a Copy of Volume 7 on the BLOG TOUR.

  133. 133
    Barbara Pricola says:

    I like your table runner. I love on-point settings. They are always so interesting, but I always shy away when I’m doing it and do the traditional settings.

  134. 134

    I’m not experienced enough to have a favourite setting…but I do adore your block’s repeating pattern!

  152. 152
    Cindy A. says:

    Great block! I can’t get away from setting quilt blocks on- point. It just seems to be more interesting visually to me. Since it tends to make your quilt larger as well I like the added plus of not having to make as many squares.

  153. 153
    Anita Blanton says:

    One of my favs is block to block that creates a secondary design; then triple border or even pieced borders to enhance the top. Thanks for the giveaway! It sounds wonderful!

    Fun block! I love the runner idea. On point is always fun, but the whole quilt top looks better with straight setting. The secondary design shows better, I think. Thanks!

    On point does look better lots of times but I get lazy ;0)

    Carol Crisp says:

    The runner on point is stunning! That one gets my vote.

  166. 166

    I like on point settings a lot and I find I keep going back to that style.

    Hi!!! Very pretty block!!!! I love it in both groups but on point would be my fave!!!! Thanks for the fun!!!!

  168. 168
    Miss Pat says:

    I think the setting all depends on the block and how it will be used. Some work better on point, some don’t and sometimes it doesn’t make a big difference. Each method is interesting in it’s own way.

    Jitka says:

    Wonderful. I like such blocks which make secondary pattern. I love setting you shou us. It is perfect. Thank you.

    What a snazzy block! Fabric is lovely! Both options look great but I’m leaning more towards on point setting.

    Karen says:

    I like settings on point, it seems to add lots of secondary patterns, in my humble opinion…:)

  175. 175

    My favorite block setting is usually On-Point, but I like your block in a straight setting. What a wonderful secondary pattern! This block has wonderful possibilities! Thanks for sharing!

    Margaret Schindler says:

    I tend to like straight settings. Love your block

    Mary Frakes says:

    I love the table runner set on point. Very pretty

  179. 179
    Heather says:

    Your block is so interesting as it appears on point in the block itself. I would use it in the straight setting and still get the movement usually obtained from on point settings.

  180. 180
    Amy C says:

    I like just plain old straight as that is what I have done up to now. I have not yet tried on point but will soon – I promise!!!

  181. 181
    Lovie Ball says:

    On-Point. Love working with blocks on-point, sometimes it gives a totally different look to a quilt. I would try yours with narrow sashing and cornerstones.,

  182. 182
    Donna Amos says:

    I like the on point setting and how it shows the pinwheels

  183. 183
    Vicki H says:

    I like both settings. I think the final project would be my deciding factor.

    Bev Thomas says:

    Great Block! love the secondary design that comes out.

    Lisa McGriff says:

    I love blocks that when combined make a secondary design, it’s like a Christmas present found in January!

    Missy says:

    I like the look of on point but have never done it before.

  187. 187
    Rebecca Schmitt says:

    I’m not sure I could choose between the two settings. Some blocks just call for on-point, others scream “set me straight”! :)

  188. 188
    Karen says:

    I like both but the on point setting of the table runner is outstanding.

  189. 189
    Jinnine Pearce says:

    Love your block. I enjoyed the secondary interaction of the block.I would set it on point.

  190. 190
    Janine Huisjen says:

    I like blocks set on point, but lately with the influence of modern quilting, I like the look of fewer blocks, assymetrical settings, and more negative space to set off the blocks,

  191. 191
    Maggie Avrit says:

    I really like that table runner. It’s so lively!

    Laura G. says:

    I prefer setting blocks straight. I would like to try your block’s table runner though. I have a thing for pin wheels. I love the fabric choices you showed. I wouldn’t have thought to use those. I love how they work together.

  198. 198
    Kris B says:

    Definitely the on point setting. It really show cases the block!

    Lynda says:

    I like the straight setting, the secondary design is very pleasing

  200. 200
    Steph says:

    I like the straight setting. I like the secondary pinwheels on point. But mostly I think I just like the larger piece. The single row in the table-runner isn’t enough to bring out the secondary patterns.

  201. 201
    Debbie H says:

    I also like an on point setting. Thanks

  202. 202
    Laura says:

    This is such a fun block! I like the pinwheels formed from the straight setting. Congratulations on having your block selected for Volume 7!

  203. 203
    Brenda J. says:

    I love the secondary pinwheels and how they pop out and give some motion to the quilt. The larger quilt set straight is my favorite. Congrats on being published and thanks for the chance to win!

    Lauren aka Giddy99 says:

    I love both, but I would set them straight! :)

  205. 205

    I think the majority of the quilts I’ve made have been set on point, now that I actually stop to think about it. I guess that must be my favorite look!

    Theresa says:

    I’m becoming more comfortable with on-point settings…but I think your block is equally charming either way.

  208. 208
    Linda says:

    I love it set on point. I’m working on a large quilt right now with secondary patterns. I haven’t quite finished all the blocks but I was so excited to see the secondary patterns that I pieced a few together. LOVE secondary patterns.

  209. 209
    Kay Ahr says:

    My favorite setting is straight, but I’d love to work on the “right” row-by-row quilt.

    I love on-point settings. Even a simple nine-patch looks so much more interesting when placed on-point!

    Congratulations on getting a block in this issue. Love all of the issues.
    I often do blocks on point, but love them straight, no sashing to see what secondary patterns appear. Love your block for just that reason!!

    Beth T. says:

    I’m terrible at setting blocks on point, so if it were my quilt I’d be putting it in straight. Your block is great because even a straight setting results in an interesting quilt.

    Rachell R says:

    I like it on point and like how the blocks make pinwheels when they are set next to each other.
    i usually do a straight setting woth sashing. I haven’t tried an on-point setting before, but its on my list!

    I think I started making quilt tops set on the diagonal, so I have not been intimidated by the on-point designs, and your block certainly looks great set that way. Keep up the good work.

    I prefer the straight set. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Hi, I don’t have a particular way that I have to set my blocks in, it all depends. I like to try new things. Rows on point with lattice, medallion, all are good for me.

    I like this block particular block on point. It would make a great table runner for my table. The colors and movement when grouped together is very nice.

  251. 251
    Amy Lause says:

    Well, generally I love the on-point setting. It seems like there is more movement and interest. I don’t even really mind the setting triangles. Altho I will say that there are some quilts that are just better in the straight setting. However, your block just BEGS for an on-point setting! Can’t wait to try it!

  252. 252
    Kaye says:

    I like to look at quilts set on point but have not tried making any of those yet.

  263. 263
    Judy Forkner says:

    It depends on the block–some really benefit from an on-point setting, but I prefer others straight set–I prefer Churn Dash blocks straight set, for instance. Most can go either way!

  264. 264
    Cathryn H says:

    Blogs are so much fun. I love to piece my blocks and I like to have a pattern of some sort come out of the fabric choices.

  265. 265
    Judy1522 says:

    Beautiful block! I really like your block with the straight setting because of the secondary pinwheel block that is created. I always love that when I see it in a quilt. With the right quilt blocks an on point setting is my favorite.

    toni-anne says:

    Set on point for drama, straight to let the block rest and give the subject space. I see the position as a creative decision and dependant on the mood you want to convey Playing about until the quilt speaks back to you is the fun part of quilt design. Am I on the right track in thinking you had plenty of fun with your lovely design?
