    Quilt question

    I was given a co-workers fabric...I know lucky me!! She's not quilting anymore. She gave a layer cake today that I'm in love with. I came home dreaming of making a quilt! It's Christmas in a silver and blue color way. I found a free pattern I want to make, the only issue I have is it calls for 10.5inch squares. It has smaller squares that all fit together. If I reduce all measurements in the pattern by 1/2 inch won't it work? The pattern is called pear tree greeting...Thanks in advance.

    Try a test block with scraps but I think it should work.

      At first I thought sure you can do that. Everyone says cut down to your smallest size. But I found your pattern and that is A Lot of pieces! Your just working with a layer cake? I'm not sure about that plan. I hope more experienced quilters will pop in for you.

        I couldn't find the actual pattern on the Hoffman site. Can you post a link to the directions. That might help

          My answer is put this on the back burner until after Christmas or you will be driving yourself crazy. Unless you live alone, don't need to buy/send gifts or cards, or do any baking!

            Hulamoon did post the link. I should add I'm only using the layer cake for the ornaments. I have fabric for the background! I have nothing going on this Christmas, I have the time. My kids are grown, except my youngest and she turns 17 this month and is going thru her I hate mom year. My boys never had that year but my 2 girls both love to hate me at this age.

              In that case I say go for it! : ) It's going to be pretty in those colors.


              That 'hates mom year' happens more than once

                Just wanted to pop in and see how you are doing with your project... I checked out the pattern and think your color choices will be terrific.

                  I couldn't see the actual directions on Hulamoons link. Just a pick of quilt and the fabric. If you go to the Huffmann site, they don't even list that pattern. I just wanted to read the directions so I could maybe help

                    I'm not sure where everyone saw the pattern. I couldn't find it on the hoffmann site. Hula moon's link only went to a pic of quilt and fabric
