How do I figure out the size of "Delectable Mountain" block I would need to go around a border? (64x64) Also, once the finished size is figured out - how do I figure the size of the HSTs? Any help would be appreciated.
oh, patty, it is way too late for me to think on this tonight. have you checked the internet?

I know this is going to be a duh moment for me but what is HTS mean? I have never done the delectable mountains it sounds interesting though.
not so late after all. if you scroll halfway down the above page, just above the brown and white renderings of quilts, it shows how to make the block. these are cut on two inch intervals. you would want your finished blocks to be 8 inches, so you could follow this pattern and cut your strips 1 1/2 inches, that would give you 8 blocks on a side. i think this will work fine, but i would like to have a few more opinions from folks here to see if i'm on the right track.
this is a method that eliminates the need for half square triangles
carey, it half square triangles.
Oh yeah duh lol. I swear its because its 1143pm here that my brain goes foggy lol.
Thanks, I found this site really helpful. I've checked Quiltville too. I guess what I wanted was a chart that would give me different sizes of finished blocks. Oh, well! I have tried several starting square sizes and I have about decided on 7 inch squares. We will see. thanks for the help.
