Default cutting sashing and cornerstones

How many sashing pieces and cornerstone are needed for a quilt with 25 squares?

If you put cornerstones on the outer edges you need 60 sashing strips and 36 cornerstones.

I also will layout the blocks and count how many of each I will need. I will sometimes draw quilt out on 1/4" graph square paper and count them. Not very smart, all ways to solve a problem and find a solution.
