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

    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-)
