Quilt With Us

I found a couple of block patterns that I'd like to make but the sizes aren't the size I want to make. For example, I found an 8" block pattern that I'd like to make in a 10" size. And found a 12" block that I also want to make in a 10" size. Not sure how to resize the blocks. Since I retired I don't have access to a copier any more (oops) and going to Office Max is a pain. They want to make the copies for you. Any suggestions? Should I use graph paper or is there an easier way to do it. I seems like it should be a simple thing to do but my brain just isn't working today for some reason. Must be all the snow.

I use the library when I want to resize things. Our library lets you make copies and then pay.

C&T Publishing makes a handy "Quick & Easy Block Tool" that has about 100 blocks and the cutting instructions for 5 sizes of each. If you tell me the name of the blocks--I'll check and see if the info is in there.

Try the book Around The Block by Judy Hopkins...Her new one is 501 Rotary Cut Blocks...I couldnt quilt without it!!! Would rank it a 5 star!!!! It's on sale in the new Connecting Threads flyer!!!!

Kathy, check in with www.quilterscache.com. Marcia Hohn has many blocks and they are free for your use. Sometimes she has them available in several sizes. That would save you the trouble of drafting.
It's worth checking out. Be careful. You might get lost in there. Lana
