    I used to have so much trouble "guessing" how much fabric to buy. Thought this link might help some people out.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing! This is a simple way for those of us who are math challenged to get the answers we're looking for. I will be using it ALOT.

    If you have an iphone, there is also an app called QuiltFab that you can load onto it and it tells you how much fabric to buy. Very convenient, I have used it lots since I got it.

    You're welcome. I've gained so much information from this board that I wanted to share what little information I have with you all :).

    Thank you so much! As a new quilter with only 3 projects under my belt, I already have a "stash" of leftover fabric, so this calculator is wonderful!
