    Can you maybe copy the 3" template and enlarge it. And then cut a template from that copy with cardboard or if your hubby is able to out of a peice of wood thats been sanded on the rims? Just an idea.

    I have an Easy Dresdent Ruler which allows you to cut blades any size up to 8 inches. I love it. I recently was practicing with it for my upcoming Dresden Plate quilt and cut blades at 3.5 inches. These are now on a hot pad that is 8.25 inches square finsihed. The blade tips are about 1/2 inche from the binding. I would say it could've been set on a 12 inch block if you wanted.
