I enjoy flipping through Quilting magazines and being inspired by all the different designs, or to learn something new in terms of a technique. But I must say that when I start reading the instructions I am struck by the amount of yardage called for. My general sense is that they put in the instructions far more yardage than you need. I haven't actually FOLLOWED instructions in a magazine (yet), but really am curious about the yardage requirements. Those of you who do make quilts from patterns found in magazines, what is your sense of this? Do you end up with a lot of leftover fabric? Or are the amounts just right, and I'm imagining things? Inquiring minds want to know. Thanks!
