    Are you planning on sashing between blocks?

    You will need 165 blocks (11 blocks x15 blocks). The quilt would then measure 66x90 inches. This is without any sashing between the blocks and no borders.

    Divide 6 into 65 and then 6 into 88 and multiply the 2 figures . I got 165 hope this helps.

    Here's my take. Assuming no borders or sashing it would be 11 by 15 or 165ish that would make it 66 1/2 by 90 1/2 which is the closest I come.

    As neither of those is divisible by 6, you will need to add borders to make up the difference. 65 divided by 6 is 10 blocks with 5" left for borders. 88 divided by 6 is 14 with 4" left for borders. 10 x 14 = 140 blocks.
