SUPER SIZE - The Math from Sew Fresh Quilts


How to change the size of any traditionally pieced quilt block.



Over the years, there have been a few occasions where a quilter has written to ask how to double the size of a block, as in the case of the Dog Block from the Dog Gone Cute design.

The Dog Gone Cute design was my second Quilt Along.

It had originally offered the Dog Block in 2 sizes.
SMALL BABY Dog Blocks finished at 9” x 6”.
MEDIUM MAMA Dog Blocks finished at 18” x 12”.


At the time of it's release back in 2015, mini mini quilting ...
