    Is there something available online (free!) that will calculate how many of this size blocks by this many blocks plus sash equals this size quilt?

    My explanation is vague but I'm not sure how to put it. I have a pattern but the finished quilt is way too small. How would I figure out how fabric to buy to enlarge it? And how many of those blocks do I make?

    Help? :-(

    quiltsville.com has a chart with the info you are looking for. How many of different size blocks are in a yard of fabric. Lots of good info on her site.

    Thanks for the suggestion but I get "domain name for sale" when I go there.
