    Hi
    I was wondering if anyone had a pattern for a 12" Grandmothers Choice block.
    I only have a pattern for a smaller 6" block and I cant seem to work out the right measurement. I keep trying to draw it on graph paper, but seem to be getting into a mess. I was wanting to make my Grandma a lap quilt for christmas.
    Thanks
    Sarah

    Have you tried taking the pieces you have to a printer and enlarging it that way?

    Its a good idea about photocopying it. I'll try that at work today.
    Thanks!

    How did it go with the photo copier? Are you rotary cutting. I can give you a list of the rotary cutting directions for a 12" block, if that would help. Let me know :D

    TBH I really havent had chance to try it yet. I would be rotary cutting though. If youve got dimensions that would be great! Im hoping to get a lap quilt done for my Grandma for christmas.
    Many many thanks!
