    I am fairly new to doing quilts and have seen many patterns out there now for charmpacks but never knew how many it would take

    Heres what I found based on the 5x5 charmpacks...

    Crib/lap 42x50 need 120
    twin 69x90 need 320
    full 84x90 need 380
    queen 90x96 need 440
    king 104x96 need 528

    These figures are based on using the squares only - you could cut down the number of squares by using borders etc

    Hope this helps..I found it very helpful Thanks for letting me share!! cheryl

    emsgranny, are you talking 5 x 5 pieces? And not charm packs, right? Cause I made a queen size quilt and I think I used less than 10 charm packs. Nevermind, I just did the math and you ARE talking about 5 x 5 pieces. duh on me.
