    Need larger version of this.

    I am new to all this and you guys have been absolutely fantastic answering all my questions. I have yet another one.

    I want to make this design in a 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" box: http://quiltingstencils.com/simplepinwheel35.aspx

    Do any of you know of anywhere that might have sizeable template so that I can customize? Or anyway that I can make this? I have hand tremors and can't use Paint to draw with. I know this block size is not normal but that's how this panel came. I don't mind paying the small amount for this template but don't know if it can be resized.

    Thanks so much for your help!

    Amy

    Buy the template, trace it on paper. Then take to a copy shop and have the re-size it.

    Pollytink, just had to say your furbaby is so regal.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    ​I woud cut the teardrop shape out of paper folded in half. Open up the teardrop and glue it to card board and cut out. Trace the cardboard tear drop on the 4 corners of a 5 inch piece of paper and trace the inner curved squarish lines using a dinner plate? Once you get a pattern you like, stack and staple it on top of several sheets of tissue or golden thread paper and stitch out the design on the machine with no thread. You will then have several sew though patterns after you take the staples out of the paper stack.

    The site has a section for shopping by size. Here is a link to the larger size of the same design http://quiltingstencils.com/simplepinwheel5.aspx
    This is only 5", but might work for your 5 1/4" space. Otherwise, you might contact them to see if they will do a custom size for you http://quiltingstencils.com/contact-us.aspx

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    I assume you don't have a scanner. There is a math formula that would tell you how much to enlarge or decrease a block. I use my scanner all the time to change the size of quilting stencils. Usually, the people in office supply stores can help you figure out the difference. Enter 5.25 and divide it by 3.5 and you would enlarge the 3.5" by 1.5 or 50%. I haven't done it in a long time so I hope I am posting the right info. The older I get, the more I forget !! Good Luck !!

    Sorry I would just copy and print then see how much I need to enlarge. And do a copy on the printer and before printing do an enlargement to the size you require. 105% 110% ex.
