Help--I'm new to quilting and wanting to make a quilt for each of my grandchildren. My goal is to make a king-size quilt using blocks related to the states we have visited with each of them on vacation. We visited 8 states with our grandson and 9 plus Washington, DC with our granddaughter. I'm thinking I can also make some blocks from pictures we took on our trips. Based on what I've read, a king-size type requires 49 blocks, so I'm not sure how to come up with the 49 blocks. Is this too lofty a plan for a starter? I've collected block patterns, but have been reluctant to purchase fabric until I have a better idea what I'm doing! Any guidance or suggested references would be GREATLY appreciated!
