    Default englarge

    Is there a web sight or formula to increase the size of a quilt pattern so you know how much material you should purchase? The pattern I am interested in is 52x62 which I would like to make it at least large enough for a double bed.
    Thank you.

    Well, MY haphazard way of doing it would be to figure the square inches of the original quilt, and of the size you want, and add the corresponding amount of fabric. If the double size is twice the size of the lap quilt, just buy twice as much fabric. There is probably a formula, and someone will come along to tell you where it is.
