    OK, I gave it my best shot. A 11" finished block measures 15.5" diagonally from point to point. I believe you need 50 blocks with five across and 6 down, these rows will stager down your quilt with 5 across, then 4 across, then 5 across, etc. You will have to add triangles around the edge to fill in to make a straight edge on all for sides. Your measurement will end up at 77.5" x 93". A queen mattress measure 60" x 80", so it depends on how much of a drop you want on sides and bottom. If you add one more row to the width of the quilt, you would need 11 more blocks to get a 93" x 93". Or you could add borders to make up the difference. Hope this helps.

    Thank you surfer girl. This is similar to what in my bumbling way I came close to. I so appreciate the time to do this!
