    I don't know what else to call it :roll:

    I'm looking for a large pattern with maybe a star pattern in the center and work out from there with blank space and a border or two. Overall size being around 48" square. I saw one in the pic section yesterday but forgot everything about it! Not sure how to enlarge a, say, 12" block. Does any of this make sense?!

    TIA, Karen

    I would think that you can take any block pattern and multiply the measurements to get to the size you want it to be. For example, if you have a 12" lone start block adn want it 48", you multipy each piece by 4, taking out the seam allowance. So using a 9patch, you would have 9-4 1/2" squares. To make it 48" you would have 9- 16 1/2 squares and sew together. I hope this kind makes sense!!!

    That quilter's cache site does have a 24" Carpenter's Wheel. Perhaps just double the the sizes.

    I did a Sara's star using 12 inch squares but into HST it fit the top of the bed and put borders on it to make a queen size.

    I think I have a pattern that might work but I am leaving shortly to go out of town. I could email it to you next week. Please PM your email address.

    We have a book called "Sew One and You're Done." The patterns are all 48" - 56" square. Is this what you're talking about?
