    Squares that play well together

    The following are sizes that are compatible in piecing:
    2, 3 1/2, 5, 6 1/2, 9 1/2
    Two 2's make a 3 1/2, three make a 5; two 3 1/2's make a 6 1/2, three make a 9 1/2; two 5's make a 9 1/2.
    OR
    2 1/2, 4 1/2, 6 1/2, 8 1/2, . . . (Combinations are more obvious.)
    OR
    3, 5 1/2, 8, 10 1/2
    Two 3's make a 5 1/2, three make an 8, four make a 10 1/2; two 5 1/2's make a 10 1/2; a 5 1/2 plus a pair of 3's makes an 8 in one direction only.

    Yes, I also thank you for taking the trouble to compile and post this. I cut and pasted it into a document and printed it. I'll keep it by my sewing machine. Excellent info!!
