Diagonal Set

‘Set’ refers to the way you set up the blocks in your quilt. A diagonal set means the blocks are turned ‘on point’ (squares turned into diamonds).

The nine patch blocks and the plain fabric squares in this photo are set on the diagonal. This quilt also uses an alternate set since the nine patch blocks and the plain squares alternate throughout the quilt.
