Did you click on the pdf file before you printed the instructions?   The pdf prints at "normal" size.

The only reason that I feel that this quilt has a "modern" flair is the use of 2 colors.  The design itself is a traditional block.   I didn't see a question from you regarding fabrics.   Did you ask here or in groups?

I did find your question.   I am so sorry that I missed it the first time.   I see no reason that you can't switch the dark and light.   It will just give the quilt a slightly different feel.   I would love to see one done in reverse.

Helen:

Bridget-Carol As I read the cutting instructions the strips are cut 1" X 8 1/2" and others cut into 1" X 8" segments.  If I am understanding your question correctly I don't think the segments are to be cut in 1/2" pieces.  The strip cutting is pretty quick and hope you change your mind and continue to stick with it!

I think you have me confused with someone else.  I answered that question on the groups board since someone thought they were to cut into 1" x 1/2" pieces.  It is 8 AND a half inch, not 8 pieces one half inch large.  Which if you think about it makes no sense anyway since we use 1/4" seams -- it would leave nothing left.    It's not the strip cutting  that is an issue for me -- it's the piecing of hundreds, maybe up to a thousand pieces.  CAN I do it?  Yes.  I'm doing that with the last Bonnie Hunter quilt.  Do I WANT to do it?  No, not at this time.

I was unable to lock this thread as it is linked in the workshop.   I do hope that everyone will start doing the majority of their chatting in the group board.   It sure does make it easier for me to keep up with everyone.
