    There are charts that give sizes and lots of fun things here.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

      Jelly Rolls - 2.78 yards
      Layer Cake - 3.05 yards (this gives a couple "extra" 10" blocks)
      Charm Pack - .85 yards (you'll get a few extra 5" squares in that last strip)
      Turnovers - 1.2 yards
      Honey Buns - 1.75 yards

      This is all my own math, but should be right.

                      My pleasure...feel free to ask me anytime. I get a kick out of it. I rarely use patterns because I like to figure it all out myself. Am I a Quilt Geek? Quite possibly.

                        Hi ~Summer~
                        Well guess what?

                        While preping up the fabric cuts for my Pinwheels (using 5x5 squares).
                        I found out (after going Edward Scissorhands on the Stashes I had)
                        that 1 Yard of fabric NO MATTER how I cut it and folded it.
                        i kept getting a total of "56" 5x5 Blocks... and the few pieces that were left, gave me a couple of 3 ' or 4' strips.

                        That was Fun!!

                        I made quite a few nice CHARM PACK BUNDLES for Future Use (that's, near Future ) and extra strips for
                        Oohh let's say a few Scrappy Blocks.
                        and are you ready for this... the thin 1/4 inch piece I removed when squaring the fabric...
                        I used them to tie the Charm Pack bundles Ooowwwee...They LOOK Sew Cute!! ~No Waist Here!~

                        Yes, I'm keeping a little journal and when I'm done trying this out I'll post here for reference.
                        Ohhh.. P.S. It went Pretty Quick wth the June Tailor Shape Cut Ruler. Posted PICS in my ALBUM
