    5” charm squares on point

    I guess I’m hung up on a what should be a very easy question. I am wanting to start with 5” squares and make a queen size approximately 90” wide quilt with the squares on point. Can someone help me figure out how many squares wide my longest wide should be and the size of the corner and side setting squares should be?
    Thanks

    Here is a video that Jenny did but if you look at the comments someone did the math to make it 75" square. I am not good at math but this might give you an idea on how to make it bigger. I hope this helps. I have no doubt someone will be along with more suggestions.

    I also found this site: https://www.diaryofaquilter.com/2019...-tutorial.html but further down the page this is what is written:

    "FAQ – I don’t have this on point quilt pattern written for Queen and King size versions because I personally think the scale of the 5″ x 5″ blocks is too small (i.e. too many seams to sew) for the larger size quilts. I would start with larger sized squares for a larger size quilt. Maybe at some point I’ll write a pattern/tutorial for larger-scale patchwork on point, but I have no guarantees when that will happen."
