I have made this rag quilt several times now (it is adorable) and modified it just a bit.  Instead of 4 squares in the middle I do 9, and the added as needed.  The final quilt comes out 9 x 9 then.   I always forget how many squares I will need. This tutorial helps with that. Per pattern: 64 - 5" squares total.  That's 28 in outer border, 20, 12, and 4 working your way inside.  Per my adjustments: 81 total.  32 outer border, 24, 16, and 9.    Count on only 8 - 5" squares per 5" of fabric…
