A charm pack usually has  42 x  5″ squares. Cut 2 blades from each charm resulting in 80 blades. Each block uses 20 blades, and a charm pack will make 4 blocks. So that’s good yield. You can also cut 5″ squares from left over co-ordinated fabric to add.

Here’s video tutorial to make an easy Dresden plate from charm squares. The ‘Easy Dresden Plate Tool’ in the video is really neat.
