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 like it set straight. It’s a very dynamic block!

    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!!

    I really like on point settings. Makes the quilt or runner look changed up and different. I’d love to win.

    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!!

    I love your design. My favorite is on point.

    I love seeing the pinwheels as they are one of my favorite blocks. Guess I would probably do it on point. Thanks for the chance to win.

  22. Koricard May 1, 2013 at 5:51 am - Reply

    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!

    love your block. Looking forward to your neutrals book.

  24. Carol Sc May 1, 2013 at 6:18 am - Reply

    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.

    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. Faye May 1, 2013 at 6:25 am - Reply

    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. Nancysue May 1, 2013 at 6:26 am - Reply

    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 :)

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

    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.

    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. Thank you for the chance to win QM 100 Blocks, Volume 7. This is a magazine that will want to keep forever. So many talented designers with their creative blocks. Absolutely amazing.

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

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

    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!

  58. Kim May 1, 2013 at 7:50 am - Reply

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    I love pinwheels so this quilt really makes me happy. I love the first quilt setting the best.

    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?

    Like on point settings best; gives most quilts a lot of movement. Your block is very deceptive. Looks fairly ordinary by itself, but when made into a quilt, it’s a wowser. Congrats!

    I’m happy with lots of settings. If I had to pick one it would be on point. Sandi

    I like blocks set on point but most of the quilts i have made are set straight. Great block in the book. Thanks for a chance to win. Janita

    Honestly I like both settings. It reallly depends on the block I’m making and the fabrics. Your block is great and I’d love to have a copy of this magazine to add to the others that I already have. Thanks for the chance to win.

    On point looks quite dynamic, but frankly, I like both of them. Thanks

    I agree – set on point it would be a fantastic addition to a dining table. I’m going to have to put this on my “to do” list. Thanks. And congratulations.

    Great block. I can’t say I have a favorite. Depends on the block, sometimes on point, sometimes flat.

    Cute block. I like the straight set.

    I think I like it best set straight, but it’s a close call! Congratulations too :)

    Great block! I think I like it set on point … but it really interacts nicely either way!

    Both are great, but I’d go with straight.
