I started creating block and quilt calculators in 2008 to make it easier for me to resize blocks and quilts for my own projects and decided they'd be helpful to other quilters. You can find blocks and other projects on my website as well as my blog.
Recently I've begun converting some quilt patterns I've created into electronic format to use on a variety portable devices.
To make a larger quilt it isn't always necessary to use many blocks. The 4 quilts in this pattern use 1 big block to make quilts that are about 45 inches square finished. The units for these quilts include four patches, nine patches, half square triangles and tri square triangles.
Complete instructions to make a throw sized Sister's Starry Night quilt pattern. Finished size is about 36 inches by 56 inches. You'll use squares, half square triangle units and what I call square goose units for the 2 alternating complimentary blocks.
A complete quilt pattern to make 3 sizes of a Lone Star Christmas tree skirt. Sizes are 40, 58 and 78 inch square in an octagon shape. Intermediate quilting skills in sewing "Y" seams and diamond are needed.
