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

    Thanks. I finally figured i'd draw a pic of the quilt and count them out. Not very scientific but i came up with the same as you. :-/

    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.
