I sort of came to this same conclusion a few years ago, but, never got around to stating how many blocks of each I would need. Thank you.

I made my first carpenter star using this pattern. It came out great. Now I want to make a full size quilt for my bed.
Not sure what size blocks I should use. I just want the pattern on the center of the bed. If anyone has any ideas
Please let me know.
Thank you

I used 6 - 1/2" blocks and ended up with the star 48" square before any borders. That would work great to cover the center of a double bed. I'd suggest measuring the top of your bed and divide by 8 to get an approximate block size.

Thank you so much Belfrybat for bringing back this tut. It is a beautiful quilt and by going to the different web sites these posts have provided I have found so much information. I've been quilting for almost years, but have yet to cut triangles - they intimidate me so much, but I think I will try this pattern and see if I can do it. Marcia
