Welcome to the Quilting Board!

OR

1. I have 5 different patterns of peace signs each at 2 yards how many 5" charms would I get out of 10 yards. Granddaughter likes peace signs I thought about cutting them into jelly rolls. Need your advise thank you so much in advance. Monie

2. Here is the link to the post:

Just last week one of the board members posted a chart about that and i printed it out. It says on the chart you get 56 5" squares out of the yard based on 40" width of fabric. Hope i am reading the chart right.

3. How wide is the fabric?

width / 5 = A

(10*36)/5 = 72

A * 72 = charms

4. Thank you!

5. I have to agree with charming 56 per yard or 112 for two yards.

6. I see 8 across because you have to trim selvages and 8*5"=40". 7 down because 5"*7=35". You can make it if your fabric is cut straight.
8 times 7 equals 56 five inch squares.

7. yes, 56 per yard is right! 8 across x 7 down = 56/yard

8. Ah. To those who said they would never do this math again in their life. It always seems to rear its ugly head.

9. I'm sorry.
