                      I really need to get off the exclamation point.
                      It may give people the idea that I'm bright and cheerful all the time....

                              Mary, thank you so much for this handy chart! I have copied it into MS Word so that I will always have it as a reference. As a newbie to quilting I have been wondering about this. You know how things seem kind of mysterious when you are new to a skill? I am always greatful for tips that help me reduce things to numbers so I can use a formula in my head. I'm loving this forum, and the folks here are so so helpful.
