Nominal size is 6.5 in tall by 36 in wide. Nominal size in metric is 16.5 cm tall by 91.4 cm wide. Encouraging words are for those times when you want to express sentiments through your quilting. They are continuous patterns that were created so they can be used separately or mixed and matched in the same project. For that reason they are all the same length. The heights vary. Most are in the range of 5.5 to 6.5 inches but there are some that are taller and some that are shorter. You may adjus the size as needed to fit your quilt, of course. I worked with a variety of fonts so if you choose to introduce more than one sentiment you'll have the added interest that comes with the changing sizes and shapes.
