What does Finished size mean in quilting?

The finished size is the size of the block once other blocks have been added on each side. This can also be sashing pieces added to a block. It can also be where you have sewn the block to other blocks and a border piece. So anytime the block is enclosed by other components on all sides, it becomes the finished block.
