    Many of us use the 5 inch charm size but other sizes work well also. Remember the larger the square you start with the less scrappy it will look. Do a search for D9P and see the different ones people have made.

    I've used 6" squares to start. Both of the D9P's I've worked on were not scrappy and had a focus fabric that I really wanted to stand out. It really depends on what you're looking for.
