Giant Double Aster – Rotary Cutting

on Aug 16, 2012 in Blog, tutorial | 2 comments

I recently showed you this quilt made from one block, which I SUPER SIZED in EQ7. A commenter, Ashley, asked if I could share the cutting directions, and I figured- sure, why not. You’ll have to work the placement and sewing order yourself, but I have a jpg, which you can save and print, showing you the sizes you’ll need for this pattern. (This is altered from the original Double Aster over on Marcia Hohn’s Quilter’s Cache. The original is a block set on point. This one is square and ridiculously bigger.)

The block is 60″ square. If you make 4 and stitch them together you’ll have a HUGE king size quilt with only 4 blocks.

Cutting the large pieces of fabric takes longer than actually whipping up the block, so you know that has to be a quick quilting project. Love to see how it turns out- Post your pics in the flickr group.


  1. Hello Jen, these giant quilts are amazing, but where are the dimensions? I cannot read a thing on the picture.

  2. Hi, Jen. I love this pattern as well, but I am having difficulty reading the dimensions. I have the 12 1/2 by 12 1/2. Then is it 12 7/8 x 12 7/8, 13 3/16 x 13 3/16, 25 7/8 x 24 7/8 and finally 25 3/16 x 25 3/16? I would surely appreciate your help as I have some really cute fabric and I am excited to start cutting to see how it will turn out.

    Thanks, Janis
