# Thread: 7/8" of a yard

1. Ok I know my inches and yards. But how do I find 7/8 of a yard on my ruler? The pillow case I want to make says I need 7/8 to make one pillow case. Oops for my topic at the top I put 7/8" I didn't mean to put the ".

2. That's 31.5 inches.

3. I just googled it and the answer was 31.5 inches . Beat me to it

4. Thank alot ladies.

5. Isn't that a riduclous measurement considering our measuring instruments??? LOL

6. I'm thinking that eighths might have started because an eighth is half of a half of a half.

1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/8

The metric system does have its advantages.

7. By the time you prewash and square up a yard of fabric, it only measures 31.5 inches anyway!

8. LMBO ghostrider...it sure seems that way sometimes :D:D:D

9. You can also multiply the 7/8 yard times 36 inches in a yard. That will give you how many inches it is, if you have future ones to do math on.

10. hi quilterj
to figure out 7/8 yards, you divide 8 into 36 and then multiply the answer by 7.
36 divided by 8 is 4.5
then 4.5 times 7 equals 31.5
this applies to all fractions.
hope this helps.
