That is the magic number for the "pattern" which would give you a 21 x 21 layout. But with a little help from my friends, I have 504 charms - enough for a 21 x 24 layout. Which based on my piecing method is a 7 x 8 9-patch layout. The charms are 5 inches square (@ 94 x 108), so I will get a queen sized quilt.
With only a few execptions they are all different. I'm not saying that I don't have more than one cat, but where I have a cat print that depicts a cat swimming, sunbathing & diving - I only chose diving to be depicted on this quilt.
& I officially have everything in there including a wash tub!
(I might need to cut some more for my scrappy back... Or maybe sew them 10 x 12 instead of 11 x 11 for a 100 x 120 back instead of a 110 x 110 back.)
Yes, you do see a baby snack food container in the background as well as my June Taylor cutting/pressing mat on my cutting, ahem dining table.
