Binding Calculator

Not sure how much fabric to get for your bindings? Follow the simple equation below for any width fabric or view the chart below for required yardages for standard width fabrics. 

1. Using inches, add the width and length of your finished quilt and double it. Add 12 inches for a buffer. 

2. Divide that number by the width of the desired fabric. (Use inches.)

3. Round that number up to the next whole number. This is how many strips you will need.

4. Times the number of strips by 2.5* inches to know the minimum amount of fabric to have cut from bolt.
     *Use whichever width you prefer. We recommend 2.5" wide strips.
