Thanks in advance.

Answer
Hey Irma,

I actually don't do these calculations anymore - way too much time.  

However, one of my first questions dealt with this and here is a link to the answer:

You should be able to work through the math relatively easily if you follow this guide.  Thanks so much and good luck with your quilt.
