    Default Size of D9P

    I have two Swirls charm packs that I might use for a D9P...

    How big will my quilt be if I use only five charms in every nine patch....the other pieces will be black...

    Also... What size would I get if I used the two charm oaks only...

    Thanks in advance,,,, I'm just terrible at math...

    I am math deficient!!! There must be a way to figure 5" charms x a 9 patch.... x 2 charm packs.... wish I had a drawing package to make squares and lay this out... how about putting it on paper?? Graph paper even

    Sorry but too much math for me right now. I did want to tell you that it will be a stunning quilt no matter which way you decide to do it.

    40 divided by 5 is 8, so you should get 8 9 patches per charm pack. each 9patch will measure 13.5
    so you will have 16 9patches
    after you cut them again for a d9p they will measure 12.5 12 finished
    so you will have 16 12" blocks size of quilt depends how you lay these out

    think that's right

    2 charm packs will make a small crib size quilt, about 36 by 42 or close to that. Adding the black squares in will give you a decent size lap quilt, not exactly sure what size.

    Lisa... Do you know Swirls? I made my husband a comfort quit from a layer cake, and got a jerky roll to make myself... I also have the two charm packs.... The colors are so deep and beautiful...... Love it.

    That should give me a decent sized quilt... Thank you...


    OR... I could do Jenny's square within a square...where she used a charm fir the center, framed it with a honey bun strip, then used a contrasting jelly roll to frame it all.... Decisions, decisions....

    I love the Swirl line. I have the blocks completed for a queen sized falling charms in reverse I made with the jelly roll and black squares. I will get around to finishing it after the holidays. Funny thing is the JR contained no teal swirl so I bought the yardage to use as borders. It was the first time I noticed that a pre-cut doesn't always contain every fabric in the line.

    I really can't wait to see your quilt! I think the line would be great in the coin quilt Jenny just taught, too.

    You probably noticed the missing tesl, because the colors are so vibrant....you see them all.

    Are you saying that your jelly roll is actually the background....instead if white or black, etc., and that the falling charms are all black? Wow..... That must be stunning. Is is together enough to post a pic so we can see how it goes? The concept if doing it in reverse is really interesting.....and fun.....

    I'll take a good picture of the Double Sliced quilt.....the one I have really doesn't show the design off very well.

    I found these calculations somewhere on the web:

    Each group of nine squares will yield four disappearing blocks. For example if you begin with 36 squares to
    make four nine patch blocks, then these will yield a total of sixteen disappearing blocks.

    To calculate the size of the finished block you need to multiply the size of your original squares by three,
    divide by two, then take off one. This will be the finished size of the block.

    For example if you begin with 5-inch squares the calculation would be as follows.
    5 x 3 = 15, ÷ 2 = 7½ - 1 = 6½ inches. (This is the size of each block - one 9 patch makes 4 blocks.)

    6-inch squares would yield 8-inch blocks
    7-inch squares would yield 9½- inch blocks

    Hope that helps!
