Can any of you tell me what size blocks you cut and what is the total size across, after the origami candle mat (seen in link below) is made? I would like one for my table, but I'd like to know if I need to enlarge the blocks or decrease.

I pm Sue/spendlove but then forgot about the time difference, so decided to ask you.Thanks

Toogie When I made mine I used a 6 1/4inch block and made twelve blocks using a 1/4 inch seam. I am sure you will cope even with a 6 inch block if you go to Google and put in origami candle mat you will see a You Tube video which is very informative happy sewing

Thanks Carol, Sue has answered my pm,too. I didn't know how big the hole for the candle measured, but I knew if you used a 6 or 61/4 block, it would be at least 12 across, not counting the hole,right?
