IMG_2756.JPGIMG_2755.JPG Hi. I am making a crown royal quilt for a king size bed. I don't have a pattern, I have been using pics off Pinterest to get ideas.

The problem is, my math skills are awful and I am having a hard time figurine out border sizes. The main body of the quilt is made up of 18 x 18 rows of 4.5"blocks.The inner border is a tan suede blocks that measure 8"x 5". I can trim those to fit because they are a solid color. What I can't figure out is how to decide what size I should make my out border squares so it looks equal all the way around. I have started cutting them as 4 8" x 8"blocks that I am planning on sewing together to form one block. I just realized that I need to do the math to figure out exactly how many blocks and what size to cut them. There has to be a formula for this kind of thing, doesn't there?
