what size block do you start with and then finish with?

There is a table in your class materials. Please download it. There are many size options.

oh, I'm sorry. I didn't realize it was a "pay for class" entry where block information is for paying people only. best to all you. Let me share what I found out: I figured out if I us 10 inch layers,Trim to 9.5 after sewing 2 blocks to make 2 half sq triangle blocks, I can cut the block 2 and 3/8th and get 4 strips which makes 15.25 x 8.5 for 8 strips or so. Hope that helps other quilters who like this block and technique. Trial and error is always a good way to find out information for oneself if it is not more easily obtained by asking someone who might know.;)

I made half-square triangles of 9" squares (from layer cake). The maths works better, with less wastage and better results. I paid for the class after I made a beautiful table runner, because I think Debbie is an excellent instructor and I wanted to see how she does it. She offers great tips for making quilts, too.

I made a variation of this pattern as a table runner and wanted mine to look like primitive-style autumn leaves. I quilted'veins' onto the leaves to make them look primitive and more 'leaf-like'. This project requires precise cutting and piecing. I've already made several to give some as gifts. Everyone enjoys them.
