    Is it typical for the Warm Wishes pattern to be 2", 3", 2" strips with a 6" square??? I would imagine you could make them any size you wanted, accordingly, of course but I have only seen the above measurements in the "googled" patterns. Curious minds want to know! lol Plus I am supposed to be painting closet doors.. I AM STALLING ..........

    I had a quick google and this was the best pattern I came up with http://www.ashevillequiltguild.org/A...or%20Linus.pdf

    The size given everywhere was as you say but I don't see a reason why you couldn't change the strip sizes make them first then cut your squares to match; hey, you could do a teeny tiny version as a doll quilt.... :wink:

    Haven't made one, have the fabric! And I wanted to change the size a bit to match the focus fabric. I think you can do anything you want to with this! Be sure to chare your pictures! :lol:

    I did one with each of the stripes the same size. I liked the look better, so I did it with 2 1/2 inch each of the three colors. it turned out but I forgot to take a pic before I gave it to be auctioned of for a food drive fund raiser. I got rave review so others liked it too.

    I just mocked up a couple of examples in Quilt Wizard - one with strips the same and one different. I liked the strips the same too but I think the sashing effect is more pronounced with the outer strips narrower. This is a pattern I've heard mentioned quite a lot on the board but never really investigated - I thought 'simple' would mean 'boring' but it isn't at all - just goes to show!

    Hey BTQ - get on with your painting - you've started something here! :D

    I have done it with a 7" square and the strips were 3.5, 2.25 & 2.25. I would imagine you can make the squares any size you want and just adjust the strips accordingly

    Thanks for all your in-put. As mentioned - I was just curious! Painting up-date. 2 doors finished, 3 to go.. Company coming so gotta get this finished by weekend. Did I mention in between Forum and painting - I made 2 batches of blackberry syrup and a batch of blackberry jam??? And it isn't even 1:00 yet! Phew! They'll be time for quilting today.. wahoo! BTQ

    WTG BTQ!

    I pieced a little doll quilt last night with strips of 1" - 1.5"- 1" and 2.5" squares - looks great, even though it's me who says it that shouldn't! I did 7 blocks by 9 so it finishes at 14" x 18" and I'll probably add a 2" border.

    But shh, don't tell anyone over on the doll quilt swap, although it's NOT for this month's! :wink:

    It went together so quick and the effect is really amazing. I'm glad i tried this pattern - thanks BTQ for the inspiration!

    Sorry can't post a pic as it's for a 'future' swap! :D

    K PM me with a pic too! I want to see... This pattern is sooooo easy and turns out great. Thanks to homever turned me on to it. I bot fabric Wed last week. Came home and washed, ironed it. Took it to quilting the next day and the top was "nearly" completed, I had some extra "parts" so decided to put leftovers to use in a small border... I need to sandwich, quilt and bind. Voila!

    When you make the Warm Wishes quilt, if you use dark fabrics for the outside strips and a light fabric for the inside strip, the fussy cut blocks will stand out especially if that middle light strip is larger. The fussy cut blocks look as though they are framed. I love the ones I have made.

    Blessings,

    I am sure that you can make it any size you like. I think it would be pretty a bit larger. By the way, I am hand quilting mine right now.
