    This is made with the 10-minute quilt block using 5" charms. Each block is 8.5 inches and the sashing is 1.5. It still gets a red border and a wider black border. The sashing took me almost 3 times longer to do than all of the blocks did. Two charm packs of 42 each gave me 20 blocks. I have not measured it yet, but it is a good size lap quilt. Each block has ONLY 3, yes, 3 seams. No joke. It is so simple and fun.It will finish at 52" x 68". Not bad for a days work and then only between customers, and yes, it was busy yesterday.

    Very nice. Yes, I loved Deb's instructions and immediately made several blocks to see how it would turn out. Then come Guild day, I took them as my show-n-tell. A couple others took my examples and what fun we all are having. Thanks again, Deb.

    Thank you all so much. I felt if I am going to make some quilts for Japan, I wanted them easy but sophisticated. I think 3 like this will be my contribution. But, I really love this quilt, will be hard to send overseas.LOL
