    Default Enlarging a patter to queen size

    In the first issue of Block magazine, there were 2 quilts I would like to make but in a queen size. They are the Wonky star and the Lattice. Could someone help me with materials and directions for making these? Your magazine is awesome! I have loved every page, design and feature. Thank you for a great product.

    You will need to add 2 rows of blocks to the width and 1 row to the length.... or 16 more wonky star blocks, making the quilt body right at 90x90, which is what I make a queen. The pattern calls for 13 of the 5" charms cut from layer cakes for one block. You would need 1 more layer cake of each the print and the solid. You would need 5/8 yard total for your 2 inch inner border, 9 strips cut at 2.5, and you would need 1 2/3 yards of outer border cut into 10, 5.5 strips for your 5 inch border.

    It would be 104x104... Not big enough for a King, but oversized Queen. With a nice hang over on the side of the bed.
