Are you meaning setting blocks on point?
Or what ?

3. yes. i understand howw to fiure the size of the setting blocks., but how do you know how many 10 inc blocks are in each row?

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!

QuiltingA ... Sorry I've been negligent in getting back to you. Will do so on the weekend. Another project??? ... heck I have too many on the go already!!! :) Must be a bugger for punishment to think I need another WIP/UFO/PhD!!!!! Take a look at my thread from yesterday about Passage Quilts and toss in your brilliant ideas!

7. don't however I thought figuring out had something do with putting it down on paper. any tutorials you can recommend?

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!

11. thank you! thank you! that answers my question. I didn't know where to start.

12. There are some great charts and tips at Quiltville. Here are a couple related to on point settings:

13. A 10" square block is going to measure ~14" across when on point (across the diagonal).

(the formula is 1.41 x the size of a side of the square - something to do with pi but I doubt you want the details).

So, for a queen size quilt - let's say you want something around 90" x 110" (that's 15" drop on both sides) -
you'll need 6 blocks across 7 blocks down.

That would be total of 72 blocks, plus setting triangles, plus border to get to your final measurments.

Without a border, that would measure 86x100.
