    Default Quilt Calculator

    Hi All,

    I am making the Dashing Star quilt that is hanging on the back wall of the MSQC shop. I love Jenny's method of sewing all the way around the two squares and then cutting them diagonally twice for 4 small blocks. My question is.... I am using a layer cake and I know my 4 smaller blocks turn out to be approx 6.5 inches each. Is there a calculator to tell me if I use an 8 inch square to start out with... what will my smaller square size be, or if I use a charm pack (5 inch square) what will my smaller squares measure.

    Thanks again, I have been quilting for probably 20 years and Jenny's tutorials have opened so many additional ways to do things.

    Julie

    I like that blog Sharyn.

    Some one had a chart with both Jenny's way and the regular way. I could swear that I saved it. maybe she will pop in.

    It was Amy

    Thanks Lori. I couldn't find this one before. I saved it this time. Amy's the math wizard!
