Hi
I was wondering if anyone had a pattern for a 12" Grandmothers Choice block.
I only have a pattern for a smaller 6" block and I cant seem to work out the right measurement. I keep trying to draw it on graph paper, but seem to be getting into a mess. I was wanting to make my Grandma a lap quilt for christmas.
Thanks
Sarah

Have you tried taking the pieces you have to a printer and enlarging it that way?

Yes - thats the one I was looking at.
Its a good idea about photocopying it. I'll try that at work today.
Thanks!

How did it go with the photo copier? Are you rotary cutting. I can give you a list of the rotary cutting directions for a 12" block, if that would help. Let me know :D

TBH I really havent had chance to try it yet. I would be rotary cutting though. If youve got dimensions that would be great! Im hoping to get a lap quilt done for my Grandma for christmas.
Many many thanks!
