How many 5×5 squares does it take to make a queen quilt?

In order to make that quilt ALL 5″ blocks with no sashing or borders, you would need 361 blocks (19 rows of 19 blocks).

Can I frame a quilt?
Framing is a great way to get a quilt on display quickly, and to show off orphan blocks that may never see their way into a finished quilt. Plus, it’s super quick and easy. Plus, you won’t need to bind blocks or quilts that you plan to frame. You can choose to frame with or without glass.
