    Wink MH Designs Growth Chart?

    I just purchased MH Designs Growth charts. The Flower Growth Chart MH 572 and the Animal Growth Chart 561. Thought they were both cute and couldn't decide which one to make for my 18 month old Grandaughter so purchased both. It's a paper pieced pattern and haven't done much paper piecing. The individual block patterns are VERY small and I don't see anywhere on the pattern instructions to enlarge the paper pieced blocks to a certain size.
    My question is if anyone else here has made this Growth Chart and if They can tell me if they enlarged the paper pieced blocks? Thank you for your time ;0). I need to get this made before my 18 month Grandaughter reaches 18 years instead...;0)

    Both patterns are listed here - rightmost column.

    I haven't made the pattern, never seen it.

    But....
    The finished WH is only 8.5" wide (x42"), and it seems there is also a border, so those rectangle (animal) blocks themselves have to be pretty narrow.

    Also, in order to get some of the shapes of those animals, there have to be very small sections to get the "curves" in the pattern.

    So it's entirely possible that the sections don't get enlarged.

    Scary, huh?
    Have fun!!!!

    It must say something about the block size - do the foundations for a finished animal look like it would be that size?

    Also, if the pieces are really small, you might want to trim the seam allowances to 1/8" instead of a quarter.
    This is only if YOU feel it's getting too bulking if you have a lot of pieces overlapping.

    Again, I've never seen the pattern so just taking a gander on what be involved.
