10 1/2 in. block size is not as easy as 12 1/2 in. block size. There are just way more patterns available for 12 1/2 in. blocks. To be honest in all the ten plus yrs of quilting I do not think I ever did 10 1/2 in. sized blocks. Maybe it will help if the block size is changed? Also I think once the holidays are over more people will sign up.I am still thinking about signing up.
