    quilt blocks from tutorial

    Good Morning

    I am trying to make some blocks that I believe Jenny (forgive me if I am wrong) demonstrated in the tutorials hour glass and nine patch. What I am trying to do is recreate the quilt on the wall behind her...I have never been able to get it out of my mind. My question is what are the block sizes after you put it all back together? Mine seem alot smaller that hers and I am worried that I cut all of them wrong.

    Here is a picture to help.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks Maggie

    In the 9-Patch tutorial, she used 2 1/2" strips to get a finished 6" block. In the hour glass tutorial, she said she used 2 10" squares to make the block but never said what those finish as.
    I would think the 10" squares would be too large once cut apart and sewn back together to make the right size for the 6" 9 Patches, but I could be wrong.

    Does this help?

    Your blocks are wonderful! I love the colors you used together.

      Thanks

      I did start with a layer cake for the hour glass blocks...that is where I am confused, mine look so much smaller.

      The blocks are from Kansas troubles serende line I believe. I bought a layer cake and a jelly roll so I know what I started with LOL.

        hmmm - I'm not sure then. I wish I could be of more help. Maybe one of the gals from the quilt company will see this or if not, maybe you can email or call them. I hear they are really helpful.

          I talked to Jenny about that same quilt on the phone. They sold the quilt, so now it is gone. I told her that she should do a tutorial on that quilt or at least a pattern on the blog. It is quite a popular quilt. I have seen some questions on this site about it and everyone that I showed it to (from the tutorial video) loved it. I want to make one like it too.

          Here is the shop number. (816) 583 - 7722 Give her a call and she will tell you about it if nobody from the shop responds to this post. I got the number from the contact us section of the shop's site.
          My user name is FunkiQuilter, but you can call me Funki for short. (Pronounced Funky.) I inherited the name from my cousin because of my love for unusual things.

            Hi this is Jenny! I am so glad you all love the blue quilt. I love that quilt too...so much that I made one for my anniversary this last year. I used the same fabric but instead of a 9 patch I used a 4 patch. What you have to remember that with the pre cuts, that you have to have the same number of seams to equal the same size block. For instance, a 4 patch and an hour glass block have the same number of seams, so the blocks will end up the same size. On the blue quilt I had to trim one of the sets of blocks to match the other. I wish I could remember...but such is the memory of the middle aged mind! I will try to figure it out...actually the dimensions are listed on the back of a layer cake!
            Whoo Hoo, problem solved.
            Have a great day girls!
