    I am going to make a california king rag quilt and could use some help on figuring out how many 9 1/2 inch blocks I would need.

    Check out this website link it has for 10" squares. It might help. Wow it says 338 squares. I would never finish it.

    Try this website:

    http://www.dimensionsguide.com/dimen...f-a-rag-quilt/

    I think once you know the right measurements, and you decide how big you will be making your squares, you will be able to figure out how many squares you will need.

    Awesome Link! I don't think it will help with a rag quilt though, because it doesn't allow for the extra large seams. They are calculating with 1/4" seams.
