Most useful video I've watched so far. I got kind of lost at the quarter square triangle blocks but I will go back and watch that part again. Thanks for your very clear descriptions.

2. JANET ROBINSON

Thank you for this wonderful instruction for resizing .

Thank you for this video. It was very helpful. I appreciate the worksheet and math facts download. She was a speedy talker but I was still able to follow and I thought she did a nice job.

Really enjoyed this. I'm a beginner quilter, and had been using graph paper to try and change block sizes, but having an actual formula has helped so much. Took me a few minutes to find the worksheets, but now I have those I'm ready!

Did you create all the transparent grids or are they available for purchase? You surely give out a lot of information and very much appreciated but now my head hurts.

6. Barbara Carlisle

Where can you purchase the clear grid sheets that shows which grid a block has?

7. Maria Goetz

How do you get the grid clear sheets? Did you create it? IF so, how?

1st example, applique, reduce to 75 % rather than reduce BY 75%.

This was a great video. Coincidentally I was needing this sort of info for a project I want to do.

Reduce applique TO 75%, of original rather than BY 75% which was said.
