The number of quilt blocks used to make a quilt is highly variable depending on a few factors. The size of the quilt largely determines the number of quilt blocks.

A quilt block is an individual piece of fabric used to make the pattern of the quilt top. Many blocks are sewn together to create a quilt. Quilt pieces could be be called patches, or blocks. Usually a quilt block is assembled from several quilt pieces, though not always. They are sometimes called appliqué.
A king size quilt will usually take around 840 squares. This means the quilt will be 30 squares across by 28 squares long.
it depends on how big or small the blocks are
How to Make an American Quilt was written by Whitney Otto, and originally published in hardback by Villard Books in 1991.
A single bed rag quilt can be made with squares of many different sizes; there is no one "right" way to make the squares. If large squares are used, fewer will be needed to create a single bed quilt. Similarly, more smaller squares would need to be sewn together to make a quilt of the same size.

Pieces of An American Quilt, by Patty McCormick, is the companion quilt manual for the movie "How to Make an American Quilt". It has the patterns for all the quilts depicted in the movie.You can find the book by clicking the link listed in Related Links, below.
BindingThe curves of the scalloped edge require the use of a narrow, single bias binding. From the remaining blue solid fabric cut 1 1/4" strips on the diagonal. Join the strips with diagonal seams pressed open. (Wrights Wide Single Fold Bias Binding is great for binding scalloped edges.)To sew the binding onto the quilt, cut the beginning edge at an angle, and press under 1/4". Begin at the top of one of the scallops and matching the raw edge of the binding with the marked line on the quilt, sew a 1/4" seam. The bias binding will easily follow the curve of the scallop. Stop with the needle down at the bottom of the "V", lift the presser foot, and pivot the quilt so the binding is lined up with the mark. Put the presser foot back down. The fabric will be pulled tightly around the V, so be careful not to sew in any tucks or pleats. Continue stitching in this manner around the quilt, ending with a small diagonal overlap.After checking to see the binding is sewn on correctly, trim the edge of the quilt even with the edge of the binding. Turn the binding under 1/4", turn to the backside and stitch down by hand. There is no need to clip at the "V"s, the binding should just fold over itself like a reverse miter corner.Don't forget to sign and date your quilt!Enjoy!(Click on image for larger view).Binding Scalloped Edges Tipsby Darlene ZimmermanMark scalloped edge on a quilt but DO NOT cut on that edge until the binding is sewn on. If the edge is cut before binding you risk stretching and fraying of the scallops.Baste along the marked edge. This will hold layers together and keep them from shifting while binding.Always use a bias binding to bind curved or scalloped edges. A single bias binding cut at 1 1/4" is best. (Wrights Wide Single Fold Bias Tape is the right size and comes in many easy to match colors!) A double binding is too bulky at the inside corner of the scallop.To make a softly rounded corner, start marking the quilt edge with Easy Scallop positioned right to the adjacent edge. To make a pointed corner or "ear", begin with half of scallop at the corner.A scalloped edge can take an ordinary quilt and make it extra-ordinary!
To make a knot a quilt, you will first have to cut out your quilt squares. To do this make a template. Your template should have evenly spaced slashes all around the square. Use the template to cut out your fabric squares, include the slashes. You simply tie knots by attaching one quilt square to the next by knotting the cut pieces of fabric to one another.
A quilt can be a fun project for kids, especially if you let them design one or two 'patches' of it. You can give them the fabric and let them use fabric paint to make a design and help them sew it to the quilt.
