    i would count how many squares (or hst's) going across the main part of the quilt and see what you get. then see how much smaller you need to make those to fit a full size bed top. then go from there. should work.

    This looks like the simplest way

    These are deep, deep questions. :mrgreen:
    OK ... I'll toss in another consideration! .... If the bed has a footboard and you're tucking the quilt in at the end (says she with the antique double bed with footboard who also tucks around the pillows and thus why she needs a king size quilt for a small bed!!!)


    And too ... how high is the bed off the floor, depth of mattress etc. affects it all!! :)

    And also -- who is sharing the bed! I like to have huge blankets so that by morning I may have a corner left after hubby has wrapped himself up like a burrito!

    See, this is what happens when I'm on hold FOREVER!

    I was right. The blocks in your friend's quilt (regardless of what size you call it) are 6" finished.

    The two plain white borders (on each side of the outside triangle border) are each 3" finished. So always half the size of whatever your block size will be. That comes out to exactly 96" square.

    Here are some measurements if you were to adjust the finished block size:

    5.5" = 88" x 88"
    5" = 80" x 80"
    4.5" = 72"x72"
    4" = 64"x64"

    Just multiply the block size x 16 and you'll get your measurements.

    As you can see, the blocks are either HST or plain, with the exception of the middle block on each side of the triangle border.

    I would definitely adjust the block size if I were making it for a smaller bed. Just leaving a border or two off doesn't scale it down, and it will be quite overpowering with the same size image on a smaller bed. JMHO.

    You'll have to decide about the other issues - tucking, pillow, platform or bedposts, additional borders - yourself. ;-)

    Good luck!

    How kind of you to spend your "hold" time in such a productive way ...... and to share so willingly for the benefit of others!! :)

    I am beginning to thing that when it comes to "quilting" - there is no such thing as a "simple answer"

    :D :D

    Beautiful, yes, leave off the last row or just cut the size of the square down. Say a 5 1/2 to a 5 and go from there. Once you are sewing them together, they will be 4 1/2 , try that like on a pillow to check it out. Either way a beautiful quilt.
