    Oh wow - the standard Brickyard finished is 49.5" x 68". There are 9 rows of 8 bricks (each brick 6.5 x 9) I added at least 20 extra "bricks" and I believe there were 10 rows of 10. I know this is not precise enough, but I just kept cutting the bricks, laid them out on the floor, deducted for 1/2" seams and cut string that length. I made sure it was was long enough to cover me laying down on the sofa - covered my feet and way over my head (I am 5' 9") and there was plenty of room around too. Hope this helps.

    my gs is only about 5'10" However the pattern i made was a take five. Its square. I should have made it another row longer. I thought perhaps he was going to use it for a couch throw. Next one will be bigger.
