    Dunster has a point. They should be able to provide you with the measurements and more complete directions. I'd call them and have them email the instructions. Surely someone in her shop has made that size, not just the wallhanging size, to determine the correct amount of fabric and to check the pattern for correctness. At the price of her kits, which I love, the directions for the size you ordered should be included.
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    You can download the pattern for free from their site as well, it's 7 pages long though. The measurements etc. for the cutting are given for the original size.

    I think Krista has the right idea for you. You will be fine. Say a little prayer each time you work on it.

    A friend of mine love, love, loves JB's quilts. When she has hit a snag she picks up the phone and asks questions. They are very helpful there. Good luck

    I believe you repeat what you have in the wall hanging until you get the size you want. At least that is the impression I get from looking at her pattern for the Da Vinci bed runner.... that's just a row of the same pattern repeated over and over. Continue to add rows together to end up with the size quilt you want.

    I would start with cutting what the pattern says and after you complete the first four blocks or center of quilt (not sure how pattern reads) then figure it out how much you need to cut or keep cutting and making center and attaching to you first center until you have width then start adding length. And last the borders.

    This is good advice. Just go slowly and do the four blocks so that you're familiar with the rhythm of the sewing. it may be that you decide to use just the 4 blocks in a medallion fashion and build the quilt out from there. Building those first four will give you confidence to go forward.

    impressed that you would even think of doing this! Please keep us posted.

    I have done many JB quilt kits, and I have found that they have always given more than enough fabric to complete the top. So there should be extra for oops!! I also usually just cut out enough to make a block or two, to be sure that I have the right idea and techiques before I cut out the entire thing. Good Luck! Can't wait to see the finished quilt.
