    Grammydd

    Hi, I am new to the art of quilting. I am retired from our local school system, where I was the head cook , and in charge of the kitchen, in which we fed approx. 700 grade schoolers, both breakfast, and lunch each day. I have always done a lot of sewing, and cross-stitch, so I decided to try my hand at quilting.I am learning as I go. I am finishing my first quilt now. Turned out fairly good for my first try. I need some help for my next project, the pattern I like is for a baby quilt. Is there any way I can enlarge the pattern to fit queen size bed.The blocks are 6 inch squares. The block can be see at Blocks Galore, the name is Forest Paths. I would appreciate any help, anyone can give me. Thanks Grammys. I am from Ohio

    Hello and welcome! Yes, the pattern can easily be made into a 12" finished Block. for the pinwheel, cut 2-4 7/8" squares of each color. for the strips, cut 4- 2.5" x 8.5", and corner squares, cut at 2.5".
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. You can draw out the original block on graph paper. You then enlarge the pattern by redrawing it on graph paper but increasing the number of squares per piece. Example increase a 4 square piece to 8 squares and you have doubled the size. After you have it all redrawn bigger on the graph paper, you cut along the lines and then ADD the seam allowances to the pieces to get the cutting pieces size. You can also enlarge a pattern by photo copying it bigger.
