    You have a showpiece there. That turned out to be a striking and very attractive quilt. I like how you used the striped fabric and the colors.

    I LOVE what you did with this quilt. You really used the fabric to its full advantage. Great job.

    I knew there was a formula for that; I just could not remember what it was. I've been drawing everything out on graph paper. My fail-safe is to cut the block 2" larger than I think I need after drawing it out, cut on the diagonal(s), fold on the centers of pieces to be matched, sew and trim. So far, it has worked, but the math is better to do before cutting, IMHO.
    So thanks, Pyth!

    Actually, you can buy this pattern here http://www.creativequiltkits.com/wal...h-gallery.html . I could not afford the pattern so tried to work it out myself. I doubt it is the same dementions as the pattern But I had an idea the size I wanted to end up with so I tried to 'wing it'. Kudos to Larry for saving my quilt!

    I love your quilt! Colours gorgeos and very great job! And thank you for by sharing the mathematical basis that gave Larry with all of us!I am very rusty in mathematics and will keep it this to remember it someday!
    You should try to make your quilt to learn how to apply it!
    A hug!

    Love this quilt - back and front. We quilters are not just little old ladies who sew, we're artists, mathematicians, and engineers, too. Beautiful job. Love the quilting, too.
