I might have been tempted but unfortunately it needs to be printed on paper bigger than A4  :devil:

@Iminei Thanks for the offer, but part of the challenge for me (should I chose to accept it  -<) will be finding a way to convert it to a format suitable for tiled printing on A4.

Looking at the size, I hope that if I reduce it slightly, I should be able to get it to fit onto 6 sheets of A4 paper.

Good grief! That's a big job.

Everything else in life would have to stop completely before I could even begin to think about attempting that one.

Sorry not for me either, I looked and thought "do I like that?" I certainly have enough fabric I think. Then I started to read the instructions and I thought "No I don't like it that much" so thanks anyway Iminei. Keep us up to date with your progress.

Progress report - I have managed to convert this to a pdf which allows tiled printing and scaling  8).

I now just need to decided if I want to accept Iminei's challenge. I'm not too keen on rainbow quilts, so if I do decide to give this a go, I will probably try a different colour scheme.

I’d love to do a challenge but not keen on the design, though I do like the pointy bits, sort of New York Beauty.
