    Here is a list I found for 4" squares and how many sqauares you might need for a quilt

    Crib/Lap Quilt 36 x 50 inch - 4 sets of 50 squares (160 squares)

    Twin Quilt 68 x 88 inch - 11 sets of 50 squares (520 squares)

    Full Quilt 81 x 88 inch - 12 sets of 50 squares (600 squares)

    Queen Quilt 88 x 96 inch - 14 sets of 50 squares (720 squares)

    King Quilt 102 x 96 inch - 16 sets of 50 squares (800 squares)

    I decided to add a bit more detail to the above info - - -

    IF using 4 inch cut size squares that will finish to 3.5 inch squares -

    36 x 50 stated size
    - 10 squares x 15 squares (150 squares) -> would yield an area of approximately 35 x 52.5 inches

    68 x 88 stated size
    - 20 squares x 25 squares (500 squares) -> would yield an area of approximately 70 x 87.5 inches

    81 x 88 stated size
    - 23 squares x 25 squares (575 squares) -> would yield an area of approximately 80.5 x 87.5 inches

    88 x 96 stated size
    - 25 squares x 28 squares (700 squares) -> would yield an area of approximately of approximately 87.5 x 98 inches

    102 x 96 stated size
    - 29 squares x 28 squares (812 squares) -> would yield an area of approximately 101.5 x 98 inches
    - 29 squares x 27 squares (783 squares) -> would yield an area of approximately 101.4 x 94.5 inches
