    The easiest way is to sit down with a piece of graph paper and work it out. Remember a 10" block will be wider from point to point. Just measure that out and you're away to the races.

    I did that tonight as I was designing a new quilt, based on this one, but changing the block size. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-122204-1.htm

    Didn't take long to graph it out and do my calculations for yardage. Now I can go Stash Shopping!

    I would estimate about 8 blocks for the first row; the second would have 7 since they are inset into the 8. If you are using half blocks for the insets, you would need about 107 blocks for a king size quilt... by my estimation!
