Wanna do this:
And I've created my own template using a compass, freezer paper, and "template plastic" from a cat litter jug, lol!
Looking at the pattern, two "petals" would make it about 12 inches across. SO, if you were going to do a queen size, how many petals would you need?
I was using the math of: 12 petals / square foot.
84 x 84 inch for queen = 7 ft x 7 ft
7 x 7 = 49 blocks = 588 petals.
EXCEPT...I can't wrap my mind around this! Since the petals end up being the sides of other circles....maybe I need more petals, maybe I need less petals. Can someone fill in the gaps? I promise to post extra, extra pics if you do!
