Default Turning Twenty quilt

I love how quickly the Turning Twenty and Turning Twenty Again quilt top goes together, But...... I really dislike how large the pieces are. The blocks seem so Big and Busy.. I am thinking of cutting the pieces half the size rather than cutting it full size. I will have to make twice as many blocks but, I just think it will reduce the Business of this quilt. What do you think?

Could you use the same method as the disappearing 9 patch and cut them up?

It would probably look similar to a Yellow Brick Road pattern if you cut down the size.

Decide how big you want a block and simply adjust the three pieces to get the finished size you want.

If you use a 3" square instead of a 6" square, you'll be making Four times as many blocks. (3 & 6 were just examples)

Changing the size won't change the design

if you want to - go for it! another way is to construct the blocks the size they are---then cut them in 1/4's turn them and sew them back together---or into any number or shape- it is your project-and it is wonderful to (get creative) with your projects and Mmake them your own
show us pictures of what you come up with- you may create a whole new world of turning 20's

What I meant was that both are basically different sized squares and rectangles that make up a larger square. Same as Yellow Brick Road. Of course they are different designs, but do have similar style to them.

To get around the busy look of the Turning 20 quilt, I used some of the same fabric multiple times instead of using 20 different fat quarters. Using the same fabric added some continuity to the quilt, and I really like how the quilt turned out.
