Quilting math problem - need help!

When I see a pattern in a quilt magazine of perhaps a wall hanging and I like the pattern and would like to make a queen size (for example), how do I figure how to much more fabric to increase for the queen size quilt? Is there a formula? Also, I have seen calculators for quilters, would that show me how? Does anyone use one of those?
Example: Wall hanging:Size 52 x 52 Fabric requirements: red batik 7/8 yd; cream texture 1 1/8 yd, etc...
Queen Size: 80 1/2 x 80 1/2 for example...How do I figure how much red batik to buy for the queen size and how much for the cream texture material? I would really appreciate it if someone knows and can help me...I am poor in my math skills. Many thanks in advance.
