    Patch Pal Quilts from Quiltmaker Magazine

    Hi All!
    I am wanting to make one of the patch pals quilts from Quiltmaker Magazine. I am doing the cat, but all the quilts are very similar. It is a quilt made up of squares and half square triangles. In the cutting directions, all of the half square triangles begin as 2 5/8 in squares, but the "plain" squares are cut at 2 1/2. There is no mention of cutting the half square triangles to 2 1/4 inches, but it appears that all the squares are put together, so it seems as if I should. Any thoughts?

    Pattern: Purr Patch

    Also, if I consistently use the mini charm packs (that measure 2 1/2 inches) and resize the half square triangles to 2 1/2 inches, and adjust the borders accordingly, do you think proportionally I would negatively impact to design?

    I am relatively new to quilting, if you can't tell.

    Thanks for any input!!

    Half square triangle blocks are cut bigger because of the seam allowance.

    Sizing down like you are talking about is easier to do when you are working with larger pieces of fabric and also easier to figure out when you have some more experience piecing. As a beginning quilter, I would follow the pattern directions exactly so I would hopefully have less problems with things going together correctly.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?
