    Math Challenge

    I am NOT good at the math part of quilting, that is why I stay on the pattern path. But I have a TON of 2.5" squares and I want to make a scrappy triple Irish chain quilt with them. I just downloaded a pattern but it has 2" squares. drat. Does anybody have a pattern with 2.5" squares or can do the math for me on the "B" block. B block would be the 2 side pieces with the solid piece in the middle.

    Thanks, I really want to make this if I can find a pattern or (hint, hint) help.

    Are you sure the 2" isn't the finished square? If not, just maybe add 1/2 inch to everything.

    here is a pattern from mccall's quilting that uses 2 1/2 inch strips. it uses strip quilting, but maybe you can get the block B from here.

    i found another site that shows an easier block B. it even tells you how many blocks to make for the different quilt sizes.

    I think she is starting with 2" squares and wants to know what size pieces to cut for the "B" block. OOPS me bad It is I who can't read...better not try and help with math but it looks like the pdf files is the correct answer...walking away hanging head in shame
