This is the conversion information for the patchwork quilts in this month's issue that have patterns the same size as one of our templates. All of our templates are identified by number or letter. Numbers in the diagrams refer to a specific template. Follow the instructions in the magazine, substituting the following information where it applies.
|Autumn Oaks||Page 39||Set B and Small Diagonal Set Triangle Ruler|
Use your Small Diagonal Set Triangle Ruler to cut the exact number of setting triangles from the four gold prints. Replace the 29 1/4" squares with 4 3/8" wide strips; see the instructions that come with the ruler.
If you own Set B, #11 is the correct size for piece B in the border. The small triangles are #14.
#14 with legs on straight grain
D = #14 with long side on straight grain
|Shaggy Pumpkin||Page 42||My Favorite Mitering Ruler|
We think many people buy our mitering ruler because it is 8" wide. That will come in very handy for the 7 1/2" squares.
|Rag Time Stars||Page 48||My Favorite Rulers|
We have rulers you will love! Our mitering ruler is
8" wide, nice for cutting the 6 1/2" and
7 1/2" strips. Our 6 1/2" Squaring Up Ruler is great for cutting 6 1/2" squares, and our smaller 3" by 18" ruler is convenient for the 3" wide strips.
|Chenille Scarf||Page 50||My Favorite Mitering Ruler|
I haven't made this scarf, but it sounds like our 8" wide by 24" long mitering ruler would be perfect for cutting the strips.
|There's a Monster in My Closet||Page 54||My Favorite Rulers|
See our wonderful rulers for cutting this cute strip-technique quilt.
|Lawyer's Puzzle||Page 59||Large Diagonal Set Triangle Ruler|
Alternate Set L version. I love this quilt, but we don't have a template set exactly this size. I would make a slightly larger block, 12" finished, instead of 11 1/2", using our Set L templates.
You will notice that using the pieces in Set L, the Lawyer's Puzzle would be missing one triangle unit in each quadrant:
Is that good or bad? Since it would require cutting and sewing 512 fewer triangles for 256 completed squares, I'm thinking it's not bad!
Regardless of the size block you make, you'll love using our Large Diagonal Set Triangle Ruler to cut the perfect size corner and setting triangles for your Lawyer's Puzzle quilt.
|Block in Treasures from the Past ad||Page 65||Sets A and C|
a = Set A, #6
b = Set C, #20
c = Set A, #4
d = Set C, #15
