Thank you for this chart. I have been putting off playing with the math to figure the finished sizes.

2.5 = 1.5
3.5=2
4=2.5
5=3.5
6=4
7=4.5
8=5
8.5=5.5
9=6
10=7

Sizing is sold in spray cans just like starch & usually in the same area for about \$1 a can. Our Walmart has starch & sizing by the laundry soap ,beside softeners.Any kind works ok. If you don't see it, ask a clerk or CS.
what kind of sizing and where do I get it... sorry I am really new with this. smile

I looked at that site and am wondering what size layer cake squares are. Do you know? They don't say in the "recipe." I don't see any reason to buy a package of squares to make the lap quilt if I have enough fabric to make the squares from my own.
I absolutely love this method of cutting the half square triangles. 8-)
