Thanks!
I sure wish I knew what to say..... Hopefully someone that's been quilting longer can come up with something.... Good Luck. Let us know how it goes
I don't know where to find a bigger block online, but I can easily give you the measurements for making a 12" block if you would like. It's a beautiful block.
nor'easter, I'd really appreciate it! Thank you!
I'll PM you the measurements. My pleasure. :D
it looks like you can modify it to 2 inch squares to get your 12 inch block. the 4 patches in the corners would be 4 inches by 4 inches, or 2 inch squares. The large blue centers with half squares would also be 4 by 4. And the center block would be 4 by 4. All finished sizes of course. Add the 1/2 inch for seam allowances.
This will look silly but what I do to fix an image to the dimensions that I need is this: I make a printscreen save and then, I open my graphic design program (I use Paint Shop Pro), I paste the image in as a new image and then, I use the zooming tool until the size of the pieces is right.
What I do is:
Buy graph paper with .5" squares
Draw full 12" square
Then split it up into half - quarters -etc. however the original design is made. This will be the size of the finished block.
You can then trace individual templates adding a quarter inch seam allowance to the fabric. :D
Yup, Izy. That is just what I do. I make blocks into whatever size I'm wanting by just drawing it onto graph paper. Then cut out each piece, adding 1/4" seam. Sometimes I transfer it from graph paper onto the plastic template and add the seams then. Good luck. Practice makes perfect.
You can get it free online. Here are two. There are lots more.

EEKKKKK, how do I know which one to print? It's new to me.
Bumping this because your question never got answered, sewnsewer2. I do not use graph paper to enlarge patterns, so I cannot give you an accurate reply. Perhaps one of the ladies who do enlarge them this way can help you with your question. (I use math. :shock: )
Ok...I hear ya sewnsewer2!!
Here is a pdf file which you can download and save to your computer and just print off what you need. This is 1/4" squares. Hopes this helps you!!
If you need any more help just PM me :D
As the paper is smaller. What I do is:-
Draw the design by 6" (No seam allowances)
Then Draw each section of the design DOUBLE the amount of squares contained in the 6"
i.e. if it was a four square patch in the 6" design each of the squares would be 3" x 3" - So make your template 6" x 6" for each square x 4 = 12" x 12" :D
For triangles - Count how many inches or part there of on each side and draw the diagonal as usual.
So if the triangle 4 x 4" on short sides - Draw 8" x 8" then draw diagonal.......hope this sounds easy - it really is honest :D
You must add your seam allowances to either the fabric or the template - your choice :D
So if you are still struggling, just PM me and we can go through it until you are sure you understand :D
Thank you everyone. I think I'm going to get EQ5 also. :lol:
I think I found what you need in this webpage:
