    I love this board

    This is the best place. I was wondering the dimensions and how much to binding I was going to need for an over-sized full quilt so I googled it to find out and guess what. the best answer can from here. well a link to the answer came from here. cool huh? by the way I figure that I am going to need around 360" of binding. (just for my sake that sounds right right?) and so with the width I plan on making it I will need around 1 3/4 yards of fabric. I hope that this is what I need and not more. exciting huh?

    If you are cutting your strips for binding selvage to selvage you need about 3/4 yd. Nine or ten strips cut 2 1/2". If you are cutting lengthwise or making wider strips then the amount may be different.

    I also love this board. I only joined about a month ago and am so glad I did. It seems that whatever the question, there is someone here who has the answer.

    I agree with Jackie. 3/4 yard will be plenty for 2.5" binding strips cut across the WOF.

    I am making a Sylvias Bridal Sampler, the other day I had a question, so I went to one of their web sites to ask, I received an e-mail that said my question was ignored or something to that effect, so I got on here and asked and with in minutes I had my answer. From now on I will ask here first. By the way, the web site I went to, I subscribed to, I canceled my subscribtion.

    they are actually strips cut at about 4.5" so need more fabric. I do like a thicker binding. but that is just me. this place is awesome.
