Resizing Quilt Blocks with Gigi Khalsa

The Quilters’ Community | Episode 83

Have you struggled with the math when increasing the size of a quilt block? Quilters Newsletter associate editor Gigi Khalsa provides a simple formula to help you do the math when making a quilt block larger than one you may see in a printed pattern or a finished quilt. See how Gigi doubled the size of a quilt block from a quilt published in Quilters Newsletter … then doubled it again! Also see the pieced quilt back Gigi made for the largest quilt block she made. To watch more quilting videos of the Quilters Newsletter TV visit and

  2. This is just what I have been looking for. If I had a paper pieced block would I need to take it to a photo copier to enlarge or could I figure out a formula?

  3. the formula is awsome – I also like the 48″ block. Being fairly new to quilting, i do not like making tiny blocks. I would have never thought of translating a 12″ block into a 24 even less a 48″.
    Now I know how. Thk you so much for sharing.
