    All are cut, not to put them together in the sets of 5.........cut them with the accucutter in layers of fq's so need to put them together.

    A 13 in square gets me 5 sets of 5. So once I had that cut from the FQ it went very fast.

    Will be mailing out later this week. I have also made a set for me when I was cutting them.

    Hi Ladies - I found my copy of APQ with the pattern today. The Charming Addiction quilt in the magazine is 78 1/2 x 80 1/2 without borders, and uses 1,560 squares - 281 sets of 5, 31 sets of 4, and 31 singletons. There's also a pattern for a wallhanging/baby size that's 44x42, but I think it would be easy to adjust to any size. I think i'm going to try for a twin or large lap, and if I like it i'll try for a queen. I'm thinking about collecting strips in all shades of one color and trying a monochromatic one, too! I have 15 sets done and packaged, and part of the rest cut, but i'll have to go pull more stash fabric to cut!

    Cindy, thanks! Ok...with the possibility of sounding newbie. What do you mean by "17" drop, 14" drop and 12" drop" is this a border?

    From the looks of the diagrams, no it is not a border, dropping over the edge off he mattress is what it looks like. The only pictures in my directions are of the 2 1/2 inch squares no border shown.

    Drop is how far down the quilt falls from the edge of your mattress. So if you have one of those thick mattress sets or a pillow top mattress you would need a wider quilt IF you wanted the quilt to come to the bottom of the top mattress. Does this make sense?
