    Hi, I am new to all this, quiltting and the message board. I am from Portland, but the winter months I live in Palm Desert, Ca.
    This year I started quiltting and I am hook. Sooooo, I am going to be asking a lot of question to all of you experts.
    First question:
    I am making the Court house Step block. Could you tell me for a 12 in. finished block what are the measurement of the center square as well as all the other strips. Thanks! Glad to be aboard!

    If you are back in Portland now, there are a bunch of quilters from here getting together in Beaverton this weekend :D:D:D I believe there is an invitation in the main section of the board.

    Hi, Barbara,
    There are several quilt groups that work and share at the Indio Senior Center. I found them to be very friendly when I was there visiting family.

    Welcome! I, too just joined this board not long ago, although I have been quilting for a long time. It's great to get together with other quilters and just 'chat' and share.

    To answer your question about the block I do it this way. If you start with a 2 inch center then you will have 5 one inch strips on each side. These are the FINISHED size, so don't forget to add your 1/2 inch for your seam allowance.

    3 inch center with 3 1 1/2 inch strips on each side. Again add your 1/2 inch for seam allowance.

    Start with your center size, subtract that number from your finished block size then divide that number by 2 then divide that number by the number of 'steps' you want.

    12 inch block minus a 2 inch center = 10
    10 divided by 2(each side of center) = 5
    5 divided by 2 (number of steps) = 2 1/2 (strip width)
    Don't for get to add the 1/2 inch seam allowance.

    Does that help?

    Anybody else have another way?
