would love to have made these barn quilts but DO NOT, NOT, want to do paper piecing, wish you would give regular measurement

Good Morning Dianne, If you don’t want to paper piece, no problem, simply cut up the patterns and use them as templates. Add a quarter inch to each side when cutting them from fabrics, and piece. Enjoy! Thanks, Betsey
