However, I've been searching for a simple pattern and have come across ones that speak about 'setting in' and Y-blocks?? What is that and will I need to do it?
I need a pattern that tells me how much fabric I'll need in each colour and the finished size
I purchased a Animal Spirits Mixed Block panel to make a quilt. Blocke range in size from 3" x 3" to 7 1/4" x 6" . How do I figure out what size to make my blocks? I want to do a wall hanging or maybe a lap quilt.

I think this looks wonderful. What do you think?
The windows are 5 inch squares, the frames are 2 1/2 inches, the sashing in 2 inches , first border is 2 1/2 inches and the outside border is 3 1/2 inches (all measurement are cutting measurement).
It measures 40 1/2 x 43 finished.
found this site today thanks to a friend and find it great to have all these opportunities to hang out with other quilters.
I am hoping to learn alot and possibly give some advice too
Start out the blog by posting a photo

There are 3 pages. The first 2 are the copies of the original Moda Hankie Quilt pattern that I got from the quilt store. The 3rd page is a diagram of how I set up my DD quilt showing the sashing. I also used a log cabin block in the corners of the piano key border. Good luck and thanks to all for your kind
