So, 20 squares ( 4 across X 5 down) would make it 32" x 40" and takes 20 (10") squares... In a yard of fabric (36" X 42") you can cut 12 (10") squares (3 across X 4 ) so, you need to determine the size of the quilt you want to make, their size of the squares you want to use and how many you can get out of a yard of fabric
