    Aurora Borealis from Twist and Turn Bargello

    Just love this book by Eileen Wright. I would like to do Super Nova but perhaps wall hanging size (48x60) . I was thinking of reducing the strip width and also the slices. Can anyone help me? .Please. Would it work?Thanks.

    Of course it would work. subtract seam allowances, make the % change you want, add seam allowances.

    It is truly beautiful. And yes it would work to reduce the size, you don't reduce the amount of work.

    I too love this book and made a cut down version of Surf Song for a Christmas gift to my mother. The author, Eileen Wright, is on this board and has offered to help if someone has a question about one of her quilts. I contacted her & she helped me with the smaller version. Her board name is Eileensquilts
