I need a pattern that tells me how much fabric I'll need in each colour and the finished size

I think this looks wonderful. What do you think?
The windows are 5 inch squares, the frames are 2 1/2 inches, the sashing in 2 inches , first border is 2 1/2 inches and the outside border is 3 1/2 inches (all measurement are cutting measurement).
It measures 40 1/2 x 43 finished.

I also used a log cabin block in the corners of the piano key border. Good luck and thanks to all for your kind

It's pieced with a QAYG method. Thanks Postal

I call it "Peaceful Pineapples."
