Once you have a pattern, the next thing you need to do is decide on a size and layout.
Most of my quilt patterns include instructions for just three sizes, and just a basic layout – but you have so many options! In the posts below you’ll find detailed fabric requirements and instructions for quilt sizes from Itty Bitty Baby Size to King Size, and instructions for layouts that add sashing, and lots of alternate settings.
All of my applique patterns (except Paper Dolls) are built on ten-inch squares. That means you can mix and match between the patterns, and you can apply a layout you see in one pattern to any other pattern. Fun!
Find links to all the posts about pattern size and layouts here.
