    I love McKenna Ryan's patterns but they are so very small. So I blow them up so they are big enough to satin stitch and can be washed in the washing machine. For me it's a win win situation! Two panels are done working on the third.

    Still stitching on this one!

    I do all the tracing, fusing and cutting whenever I need something to keep busy with a football game on TV. It is just busy work. Assembling the pieces is just plain fun and so it goes very fast. The stitching is fun because you can see the progress and the end is in sight. If I did it every day for most of the day it would probably take two to three weeks, but that is every day and all day. I take breaks and make other easier quilts instead when I need a break.

    I bought this set in 2008 in a quilt shop in Skagway AK while we were on our Alaska cruise. I've started gathering fabric to use on it. I now know why I was just dragging my feet to start it. I was waiting until you posted that you make them larger. LOL. I want them to be a quilt, but I thought they were small blocks and would need large sashes and borders. This is great. I'll be watching this post and when I start mine I will post them too. Love your avatar.

    What a great idea! It never would have occured to me to blow up the pattern. I think you have just made this doable for me! Thanks!
