    Looks like you're accessing the German site "Sticken mit Sulky" but there is the english available. In Canada our patterns are in cm as well, but some have both the cm & inches.

    How do you make the cm conversion to keep quilt similar in size?

    I do an Internet search to convert centimeters to inches. You get some weird sizes due to the conversion. I round up the converted size to the next closest size and then plan to add about an inch to in order to make the blocks work in the quilt. For example the finished block size with seam allowance for BOM 1 is 21.5 x 59.5 centimeters. So I plan for the block to equal 8.5 x 24 inches. Adding the extra inch will allow for adjustments.

    some of you asked me about the translation from centimeters to inch. Here you can do it!
    http://www.pats-pets.de/cm-inch.htm
    put your cm (centimeters) in the second box and push the button "umrechnen" (translate) than will you get the INCH ! If you need further measurements, so you must push the butten "löschen" (delete) . After that you can translate again from cm to inch and again you put the data of centimeters in the second box

    Hope it helps

    Hey all, I went through and converted the items for block 1 to inches in case you haven't yet. I'm sorry for the mix of decimals and fractions, I used different sites at different times.

    - Finished block size: 7.87 x 22.83
    - Block size including seam allowance: 8 15/32 x 23.42

    Cut:
    1a beige with beige roses 5 5/16 x 4 17/32
    1b pink plaid/gingham 3 47/64 x 4 17/32
    1c white with little roses 8 15/32 x 17 1/8
    1d gray plaid/gingham 8 15/32 x 2 61/64

    I haven't finished the block yet but so far, so good.

    Thanks!

    Just looked and the February block is now available. This is just too cute. I started it, but have changed it a whole bunch.

    I have many things of my grandmothers, mothers, etc., and am going to sew them onto the quilt. Mom's old pin cushion that was behind the door at the farm has a new home, grandma's embroidery scissors have a new home, as do some buttons, spools of thread, hookd, eyes, you name it, it is in their sewing boxes.

    I'm not sure how many of the actual blocks I will do, but when I'm finished my sampler, I will have many things from people who were very near and dear to me. Right now I have mainly made blocks that have small blocks on them that I can sew things on to.

    I am considering printing a picture of my grandmothers and mom onto fabric and making that part of the block that their items are part of.

    Thanks for the link. This is cute! I looked on my tape measure and it has both centimeters and inches so I can convert the measurement myself. I think I may do my scrappy to use some of them.
