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. ANNEMARIE

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.

3. Anne-Marie Greenway

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.

5. Barbara Carlisle

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

I am looking at reducing a block from 16″ to 12″ . I might be missing it but I do not see reductions. Can you help? The 16″ is made up of 8×8 grid. I hope that is it as I don’t really know what I am talking about. Thank you Barb

Hello Barb,

If the block measurements were not given in the video- in the description below the video there is a link to “click here to download the resizing blocks worksheet”. This will have the information you need in order to resize your block.

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

7. Kat

Thank you that was very informative and explaining how to increase and decrease a pattern. Thank you for providing all that info in the worksheet now to go try some of those formulas on a few patterns to resize them.

I’m interested in watching quilting tutorials. I’m a quilter who’s been away from quilting for years

There is also mo picture of which block she is doing the math to on those worksheets so How can I remember which block she is doing the math with?
I wish you guys would just stop my membership from automatically taking my cash away from me when this session is over. But you won’t do that.

She assumes that people are good at math to begin with when it comes to decimals and fractions. Simple is not so simple. She is also talking about a disc that not everyone has, so it really isn’t a free lesson at all.

Also, after I asked the question, how do I know when you’ll answer it? Will I get a notification by email?

12. Christine

Hi, the instructor said a few times that the patterns are also in the disk, do we need to purchase a CD to get the pattern or this video is also on CD form?

• Customer Service

Hello Christine,

No, there is not currently a DVD of this video, and you do not need to purchase anything. To get the worksheet you can download it by clicking on the link at the end of the video description.

Hope this helps!
