    I would like to make a baby quilt in this pattern, now I can not locate the tutorial for this. Can anyone point me in the right direction. Have to get busy sewing this quilt, the baby is due in a month and you never know she could be early. Thanks.

    How about trying a search ... Google and/or the search function at the top of this page both will give you what you want!

    I am not sure how wide to cut the stips this being for a baby quilt, am thinking 3 1/2 inches? This would make around a 9 inch finished block, would work up quickly, I think. Done a fair bit of quilting never done this one, though.

    3 1/2 seems small to me... remember, your center square is going to be cut into 4th's, so the small squares will end up 1 1/4 inch square (I think that's right!)... Consider the fabric you are using and the scale of any prints in it also.

    You can make them whatever size you want ... the larger the starting blocks, the quicker the project will work up.

    Here's one from our board.

    I think the size of the block depends on your preference.

    The strips will be cut to 3 1/2 inches before I sewed it together, the block size would be 9 inches, I think. I will check out missouri site, they have some good stuff. Thanks.

    I like using charm size squares for mine. Fast and easy way to use up charms or scraps cut into 5 inch squares.

    If you look at the top of the page, right under the bold title QUILTING BOARD-THE QUILTER's MESSAGE BOARD, you will see a list of sections. One of those sections reads... Search. If you press it a little box will appear and you type in what you are looking for. When a lot of titles come up, look for one that has Tutorial at the side of it and press that.

    DW and I went to a quilt show and they did a demo on the D9P. DW is now making one and so am I. The 5" sq seems to work well. But you can use any size you want to. As has been said remember your center block is cut into 1/4 size.

    Thank you very much, I did that shortly after I posted. All I wanted was an answer, the search was great, it showed a whole lot of picture postings, which was great, but what I wanted was some advice and a little direction. I have it figured out now, thanks to the poster who suggested missouri star quilts.
